Due to a water main break near Longwood Park, that occurred shortly after 5pm today, several roads remain closed in Salem.
• East Main Street heading east is closed from Thompson Memorial to Lynchburg Turnpike
• East Calhoun and East Burwell are closed to traffic
• Southbound Lynchburg Turnpike stretching to Idaho Street also is closed
These streets likely will remain closed until midday Thursday at the earliest, while repairs are completed.
Motorists are asked to bypass the area by using routes off of 4th Street when possible.
