TRAFFIC ALERT: High water impacts roads; closes Richmond ramp

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

High storm water has closed the 7th street ramp to the Downtown Expressway until further notice.

The ramp shut down at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, and has remained closed through the Wednesday morning commute. It is believed that a drainage system is at capacity because of continued rain impacting Central Virginia.

Chesterfield Police are monitoring high water at Buford Road and Pinetta Drive, Old Bon Air Road Rockaway Road, and along Spring Run Road.

Motorists are advised to travel slowly when commuting.
