Coxendale Road Bridge closed after accident

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - V-DOT closed Coxendale Road Bridge in Chesterfield County while it's under inspection, and it will likely be closed most of the day.

An accident yesterday involving a truck carrying a backhoe may have damaged this overpass.

Due to the extent of the damages, VDOT determined a full bridge inspection is necessary.

So if you normally take this road, you should find an alternate route. No word on exactly when it will re-open.
