Water main break impacts West End traffic

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A water main break will impact Friday morning traffic in the Far West End of Henrico County.

Crews are working to fix the water main break at the intersection of Ridgefield Parkway and Lauderdale Drive.

“Traffic is expected to be affected northbound on Lauderdale at Ridgefield,” a Henrico Police spokesperson said. “Commuters should plan for delays.”

The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities expects crews to complete repairs by 9 p.m.

“Water service is expected to be disrupted to about 10 customers,” a Henrico County Department of Public Utilities spokesperson said. “The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) will provide bottled water to those affected.”

Detour details:

Crews are closing the northbound lanes of Lauderdale Drive, from Cambridge Drive to Ridgefield Parkway, and the right eastbound lane of Ridgefield east of Lauderdale to repair a broken water main.

Northbound traffic on Lauderdale will be detoured onto Cambridge, Gayton Road and Ridgefield before being redirected onto Lauderdale.

All traffic heading east on Ridgefield will use the left lane east of its intersection with Lauderdale.

Crews will allow residents living in the restricted area to access their homes.
