More than a dozen roads are still being fixed from Tropical Storm Michael’s damage
Courthouse Road in Northumberland County is one the 17 roads still under repair after Tropical Storm Michael in October.

Six months after Tropical Storm Michael hit Virginia, 17 roads around the state are still in the process of being repaired.

State road repairs have been “extensive” and are estimated to have cost $25 million, said Lindsay LeGrand, spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of Transportation. Crews have worked on fixing pipes and washed-out roads, which can cause sinkholes.

Tropical Storm Michael caused the most severe flood-related damage in the central part of the state and Southside.
