TSA baggage-screening equipment repaired after being down at Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport

Travelers should allow time for manual baggage checks


The screening equipment has been repaired and is working again.

Transportation Security Administration screening equipment is temporarily down at Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, according to airport officials.

Wait times are increased at the security checkpoint.

Officials ask travelers to allow for additional travel time for check-in and screening, as TSA officials will have to manually screen baggage.

Airport officials say a technician is en route for repairs, but they don't know at this time when the problem will be fixed.
