US 641 temporarily closed

Emergency Management crews have closed US 641 south of Marion from Industrial Drive to Weldon Road.

It appears a gas leak my have prompted the temporary closure.

At 2:40pm today, Billy Arflack, deputy director of Emergency Management, said the road will be closed for 2 hours.

Passenger vehicles are able to self-detour via side roads, including Chapel Hill Road.  Motorists are urged to use caution as they detour.  There is no practical detour for trucks travelling this section of US 641.
