HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - A water main break caused delays for morning commuters in Henrico County’s west end.

Just before 11 p.m. Monday, Henrico’s Department of Public Utilities reported a portion of North Parham Road would be closed due to the watermain break.

Traffic was also diverted at Hungary Spring Road.

Crews expect pipe repairs to be completed by noon, and lanes should reopen by 6 p.m.

Road closures were expected to impact nearby businesses and residents in the area.
