All lanes on Challenger Avenue (Route 460) and Cloverdale Road (Route 220 Alternate) in Roanoke County have reopened after a tractor-trailer accident caused delays earlier Tuesday.


A tractor-trailer accident is causing delays on Route 460 in Roanoke County.

The accident took place at the intersection of Challenger Avenue (Route 460) and Cloverdale Road (Route 220 Alternate), which is in front of the Walmart in Bonsack.

The Roanoke County Police Department asks drivers to avoid the area if possible because of congestion.

The tractor-trailer is on its side and blocking the eastbound right lane of Route 460. The west left lane is also closed. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction and shifted into westbound lanes.

Drivers cannot use the left/center turn lane from Cloverdale Road onto eastbound Route 460 because one southbound lane of Cloverdale Road approaching Route 460 is also closed.

Check back soon for more updates.
