GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) -

The Goochland County Department of Public Utilities is currently responding to a sewer main break in the Lower Tuckahoe subdivision.

The storm sewer overflow occurred just west of Tuckahoe Creek, according to Todd Kilduff of Goochland County DPU.

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has been notified of the situation. According to Bill Hayden of the VDEQ Public Affairs Office, the City of Richmond has also been notified of the overflow, since the creek is a water supply for the city.

The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that all lanes of River Road (Route 650) are closed at Hill Point Road because of the storm sewer overflow. VDOT encourages drivers to take Blair Road (Route 649) north to Patterson Avenue (Route 6) east to North Gaskins Road (Route 157) south back to River Road (Route 650). Drivers should expect significant delays. The road closure and detour are expected to stay in place until Friday for cleanup, according to VDOT.
