Intersection of Ironbound, Monticello Closed, Should Open This Afternoon

The intersection of Ironbound Road and Monticello Avenue is closed after a private utility contractor working on the Ironbound Road Improvement Project struck an unmarked gas line early this morning. The intersection is expected to re-open by 1 p.m., according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Private utility crews are currently performing repairs on site. Motorists should expect delays until approximately 1 p.m.

Work started on the Ironbound Road project in late 2010. The project includes a widening of the road and the addition of turn lanes to a 1.12-mile stretch of the road at a cost of $16.6 million.
