Good Monday Morning!
Several new road closures are scheduled to begin across the region today:
Roanoke County: Work on the Rt 419 bridge over I81 at the 141 interchange will continue this morning. Traffic on the Rt 419 bridge is reduced to one lane in each direction. The closures were expected to be removed by 6 a.m., but due to weather issues they will last throughout the day.

The closures will be in place Sunday through Thursday lasting until the fall.
