HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Two water main breaks on Lauderdale Drive that prompted detours Wednesday morning have been repaired, officials said later in the afternoon.

As a result, service has been restored to impacted customers, county officials said in an email around 4:15 p.m.

The water main break on Lauderdale affecting traffic at John Rolfe Parkway has been repaired and the road has reopened.

Officials said crews are repairing the asphalt at the break at Lauderdale and Gayton.

"DPU anticipates the repair will be completed and road reopened by midnight," officials said.

Police had closed northbound traffic north of Francis Drake Drive and drivers were detoured down Ridgefield Parkway to Gayton Road.
