VINTON–This morning long traffic delays were experienced westbound on Virginia Ave/Hardy Rd into the City of Roanoke. Currently there is bridge construction that has both directions of Virginia Ave and Dale Ave down to one lane.
This construction will continue for sometime.
Additionally Walnut Ave at the Wise Ave bridge is closed due to a sink hole repair. This repair will take several days.
We encourage commuters to explore other routes through Vinton to include the Blue Ridge Parkway and Gus Nicks Blvd. Be prepared for long delays in the morning westbound commute as well as in the evening eastbound commute if you are traveling Dale Ave into Vinton.
