A section of Route 220 in Alleghany County will be closed later this month so a drain pipe can be replaced.

The closure will be put in place near Dunbrack Road (Route 684), which is north of Covington. That part of the road will be closed to traffic.

All non-commercial vehicles will detour via Jackson River Road (Route 687) and Falls Hollow Road (640). Commercial vehicles will be directed to Route 42 and 39 during the closure.

The work is expected to be finished Oct. 2. All work is weather permitting.
