Albemarle County, VA
Rockfish Gap Turnpike
Route 250/151 Intersection
A major accident at the Route 250/151 roundabout construction site stopped traffic for a lengthy time on Wednesday afternoon. A semi truck and another vehicle flipped after approaching to work zone. Power lines were also torn down in the crash.
The intersection has been quite the hot button of discussion ever since the announcement of a roundabout was discussed. Our facebook page was on fire with comments Wednesday after the wreck.
Things will get worse for the coming week (Sept 25-29th) as traffic detours are planned at the intersection.
