Elbow Road Is Closed From Round Hill Drive to Walpole Street

Irene #062 – 11 a.m.

Monday, August 29, 2011

Elbow Road is currently closed from Round Hill Drive to Walpole Street.

As water from Hurricane Irene receded, city crews discovered a tree in the power lines.  Dominion Virginia Power and the city’s Landscape Services staff are working to remove the tree, restore power and open the road back up to traffic.  At this time, they hope to have the road open later this afternoon.
