Traffic Alert: Water main break near Gaskins Road

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A water main break on Gayton Rd. between Gaskins & Wembly roads near Pinchbeck Elementary school is causing traffic delays to westbound traffic.

Eastbound traffic is not affected. Drivers westbound are being detoured at Maybeury Drive and Patterson Ave. Henrico County's Department of Public Utilities is urging drivers to use caution while in the area.

The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) received notice of the break at 7:50 a.m. and expects to spend much of the day making repairs. The cause has not been determined.

Earlier this month a water main break shut down Quioccasin Road near Gaskins in both directions, as crews had trouble getting the water completely turned off so they can finish the repair.
