High water forces temporary closure of Roanoke River Greenway and Tinker Creek

High water forces temporary closure of Roanoke River Greenway and Tinker Creek

Due to the rain and the forecast for more in the coming days, the section of the Roanoke River Greenway that parallels Wiley Drive between Wasena and the second low water bridge will be closed from today, Tuesday May 24th until further notice. Tinker Creek Greenway is also flooded near Dale Ave and near Kenwood, so please avoid these areas.

Even when the water recedes, debris will remain on the trail surface, creating potentially hazardous conditions. Please find alternative routes to avoid this area. Roanoke City Parks and Recreation Staff will monitor the situation and send cleaning crews as soon as feasible.
