RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A busy west end road is back open after a water main break and gas leak kept crews busy throughout the night.

Repairs continued until early this morning at the corner of Gaskins and Gayton roads.

Crews were working late into the night, trying to repair the ruptured gas line and broken water main.

This problem started early Thursday when most people nearby were getting ready to go to work.

The problem continued throughout the day and escalated when crews realized a gas line was involved too - not just the water main.

Part of Gayton Road was shut down until early Friday morning.
