Three bridges destroyed in Fairfax

FAIRFAX, VA 9WWBT) - Road and bridge damage from tropical storm Lee reaches $10-million in Fairfax County.

VDOT says Lee destroyed three bridges on secondary roads in Fairfax including this one on Lorton Road.

More than 6,000 drivers use this road every day. The detour will take eight miles!

The bridge will have to be replaced with a temporary structure -- which VDOT hopes to complete in the next two months.

Six roads are still closed.

VDOT expects more potholes to open in the coming days.
