TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 621 IN BOTETOURT COUNTY CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING
SALEM – Due to flooding last week and continued rainfall on Monday, Route 621 (Roaring Run Road) will be closed to traffic at a box culvert that was previously under construction.
Route 621 (Roaring Run Road) was previously reduced to one lane since April as work to replace a box culvert, located 0.30 miles from Route 615 (Craig Creek Road) and 2.65 miles from the Alleghany County line, has been underway. High water continues to be present and crews are waiting for the waters to recede so that the area can be evaluated for repairs.
At this time, there is no estimated time for the road to re-open to at least one lane. Residents in the area should plan their travel accordingly for the next few weeks. Signs and message boards will be put in place today to alert drivers to seek an alternate route.
The culvert was previously expected to be completed this week.
