VDOT reopens highway in Roanoke County

Saturday - 1/11/2014, 7:22pm  ET

SALEM, Va. - Transportation officials have reopened a southbound section of Route 220 in Roanoke County.

The Virginia Department of Transportation closed the section between Route 419 and Southern Lane late Saturday afternoon because a slope on a nearby slope was unstable. A ramp leading from southbound Route 419 onto southbound Route 220 also was closed.

VDOT says both the road and the ramp have reopened.
