Attention Roanoke residents. There will be a long-term closure on the SH 170 – Alliance Parkway project. The contractor will be closing the section of Independence Parkway between the SH 170 frontage roads. The closure is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 23, 2022, and will be in place until the Fall of 2022 to allow for the future building of SH 170 lanes and Independence Parkway bridge. During the closure, traffic will be detoured to the nearest cross-street intersections at Park Vista Boulevard and US 377. The detour map below shows the designated detour routes for both northbound and southbound Independence Parkway traffic.
