HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Route 5 in Henrico County has reopened over Bailey Creek after emergency bridge repairs.

“Crews began repairs on Friday, June 14 after making the decision to close Route 5 due to the slight rotation of a retaining wing wall on the bridge following persistent rain and stream flow,” VDOT said.

The detour was lifted on Friday, June 28.
