TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 220 IN BOTETOURT COUNTY RESTORED TO FOUR LANES AS TANKER FIRE REPAIRS NEAR COMPLETION
Expect additional daytime lane closures on southbound Route 220 this week for paving
SALEM – Route 220 in Botetourt County just north of Fincastle has been restored to a four-lane road as work to repair damage from an overturned tanker fire that occurred on February 20 is nearing completion. Two lanes of Route 220 in each direction are now open.
Weather permitting, drivers on southbound Route 220 should expect some additional lane closures during daytime hours for paving and line marking this week.
Work has been ongoing since February to replace a section of pipe that was destroyed and rebuild the northbound lanes of Route 220.
Traffic previously had been shifted into a two-way pattern using the southbound lanes of Route 220.
