Staff reports • Jan 17, 2013 at 2:43 PM

A portion of King Springs Road in Johnson City has been closed due to erosion along Sinking Creek, according to a city news release.

"Effective immediately, King Springs Road from Legion Street to East Main Street will be closed to through traffic until further notice," the release said. "Local traffic will have access to side streets and homes but the road will be completely blocked and impassable at a point approximately 320 feet west of Ferrell Drive."

The damage could take months to repair, according to Assistant Public Works Director Mike Arsenault.

Signs will be placed at both Legion and East Main streets to alert drivers and advise them to use alternate routes. Detours will be posted.
