HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The right eastbound lane of West Broad Street is closed near Staples Mill Road due to a water main break in Henrico County.

The closure exists between Mordie Road and Staples Mill Road while repair crews work to fix the broken water main.

Traffic is being shifted to West Broad’s center and left lanes in that area.

The break has also caused reduced water pressure to about ten businesses in the area.

The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities expects to have the repairs complete by midnight tonight.
