Another water main break impacts I-95 traffic

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A second water main break on I-95 affected interstate traffic in the City of Richmond Tuesday morning.

The break initially closed all northbound lanes near the Hermitage Road overpass (mile marker 79). As of 1:40 p.m., all lanes are open.

VDOT is advising drivers to use caution in the area and to expect delays.

This is the second water main break on I-95 in 24 hours. 

A broken water main poured several feet of water onto I-95 in downtown Richmond Monday afternoon and forced VCU Medical Center to cancel some procedures and appointments according to sources in the hospital.

That break has since been repaired.
