Road closures in Vinton
Walnut Avenue is closed from 4th Street to 8th Street in the Town of Vinton due to debris blocking the roadway caused by the flooding overnight. In addition, Walnut Avenue is also closed where it meets Wise Avenue in the City of Roanoke for the same reason. Debris is blocking the bridge under the railroad trestle at that location.
Mountain View Road is reduced to one lane in a short part of the 1400 block due to what appeared to be a small sinkhole. Public Works crews have put a temporary fix on that location and will reassess the issue after daybreak.
