Century Link Cellular and Landline Phone Service Interruptions in North Garden and Covesville Areas

As the result of a crash this afternoon, the Century Link Fiber Optics box was hit impacting cellular and landline phone service in the southern portion of Albemarle County. There is currently no service in the North Garden and Covesville areas.

Century Link representatives are on scene but say the service will not be restored until at least 6:00 am tomorrow morning. If you have an emergency, attempt to call 911 first. If you cannot reach the Emergency Communications Center, the North Garden Fire Station will be staffed overnight. They will have radio contact with the ECC and can request appropriate services. The ACPD will have officers patrolling the area during evening and midnight shifts.

Any questions about the restoration of service should be directed to Century Link.
