Parking lots in and around Dedmon to close Sunday evening

Lots in and around Dedmon Center to close Sunday 9 p.m.

RADFORD, Va. – At Dedmon Center all parking lots in and around the area will be closed Sunday evening with restricted access.

Due to flooding, all cars must be moved prior to Sunday’s 9 p.m. closure of University Drive.

According to the National Weather Service, the New River is expected to crest about 19.5 feet Monday night.

This is considered moderate flooding, just a half-foot shy of the 20-foot threshold that would move it to major flooding.

Lots FF and Z were previously closed and remain closed.

As the New River crest continues to rise, Radford University encourages everyone to be mindful of road conditions during your travels.
