GRAPHIC=News-7 at 10 There are new concerns about


safety after a tractor trailer hit the
Liberty Road Bridge in Roanoke this
morning.

News 7's Justin McLeod joins us
with the latest. Justin is the
overpass safe?

Natasha, V-Dot insists it is.

is indeed safe.

RUNS=1:20 (END SOT)



OQ=to take repair action <<((NAT SOUND OF SOMETHING))



Shortly after the Liberty Road bridge
was struck, V-Dot crews came out and
surveyed the damage.

SOT FULL



JASON BOND/V-DOT SPOKESPERSON: THEY
FOUND A FEW OF THE CONCRETE BEAMS HAD
BEEN MOVED AND THEY FOUND SOME OF THE
STEELE CABLES UNDERNEATH THE BRIDGE,
THE TENSIONING CABLES WERE EXPOSED.

(END SOT)



But overall, V-Dot says the crash did
not cause any serious damage.

That may come as a surprise
considering this bridge has been hit
six times in the last five years.

Who could forget this incident back
in September 2002, when a backhoe on a
flatbed trailer hit the overpass,
taking some big chunks of concrete off
the bridge.

It's been struck so many times in
fact, the bridge is considered
structurally deficient.

SOT FULL



JUSTIN McLEOD: IN LIGHT OF WHAT
HAPPENED LAST WEEK IN MINNEAPOLIS,

SHOULD DRIVERS BE CONCERNED?

JASON BOND: JUST BECAUSE A BRIDGE IS
LISTED STRUCTURALLY DEFICIENT, DOESN'T
MEAN THERE'S ANY IMMENIENT THREAT THAT
THE BRIDGE COULD COLLAPSE.

(END SOT)



But it's enough of a concern that
V-Dot inspects the bridge once a year,
rather than every two years which is
the norm.

We understand the Liberty Road bridge
was inspected just last Sunday and
crews found no major problems.

SOT FULL



JUSTIN McLEOD: THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF
YOU FELT IT WAS UNSAFE IT WOULD BE
CLOSED AND TRAFFIC WOULD NOT BE GOING
UNDERNEATH IT.

JASON BOND: IF THERE WERE A PROBLEM
WITH ANY OF OUR STRUCTURES, THEN WE
WILL TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY, TO EITHER
LOWER THE WEIGHT LIMIT, TO CLOSE THE
BRIDGE, OR TAKE REPAIR ACTION.

(END SOT)>>



LIVE=Justin Full LIVE FULL



V-dot says the bridge will need
some repairs, but it's unclear at this
point when that may happen.

DOUBLE BOXES=Plasma Screen DOUBLE BOXES




So in the meantime Natasha, the
bridge itself will be closed to
pedestrians but it remains open to
vehicles.

temperature today in Roanoke was a
record 101 and the low was 79 which was
a record high minimum for the date.
Locally tonight, Hazy skies continue

tonight with very muggy conditions once
again. Friday, we'll watch the approach
of a cool front. This may fire an
isolated (20% chance) storm during the
afternoon, but generally this is a
moisture starved boundary. Hot and
humid on Friday with highs back in the
90s. Roanoke and Danville may see some
new records. Once the cool front moves
east toward the coast, we'll be left
with warm weekend temperatures in the
upper 80s to near 90, however, the
humidity should come down a bit. High
pressure will keep our skies mostly to
partly sunny through the weekend and
