HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Repair work on Staples Mill Road from Thursday’s water main break was completed by the afternoon on Saturday, according to Henrico Police.
The water main break initially caused a shutdown on Thursday, closing multiple lanes.
Henrico County’s Department of Public Utilities said the break was longitudinal, involving a 10-foot-long stretch of the pipe. The pipe was later repaired and the water is back on after crews worked to repave the road.
As of 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18, Henrico Police said repair work on Staples Mill Road from the water main break should be complete by 1 p.m.
Police said the northbound lanes reopened around that time.
