By  | 

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7)- UPDATE: Roanoke County dispatch tells WDBJ7 that Virginia 116 in the Windy Gap area is no longer blocked by a stuck big rig, which has been moved from the scene.

The driver was cited for failure to obey highway signs.

ORIGINAL STORY: A stuck tractor-trailer is causing traffic backups on Virginia 116 in Roanoke County.

The driver got stuck on the curvy road near the bridge construction in the Windy Gap area early Thursday, and there is no estimate regarding when the truck will be moved.

There are multiple signs along 116 telling drivers of big rigs not to travel that road with their trucks, as the road is very steep and curvy in places.
