Emergency repair following damage from Tropical Storm Michael is complete

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. ⸺ Route 202 (Hampton Hall Road) in Northumberland County reopened to through traffic today following an emergency repair project by Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews. 

The road was closed to traffic on Oct. 12 after heavy rain and flooding from Tropical Storm Michael. VDOT crews repaired a sinkhole that developed along the shoulder and edge of the pavement, replaced a collapsed drainage pipe, and restored the road’s travel surface. 

This evening, VDOT crews are scheduled to reopen Route 601 (Kings Mill Road) in Westmoreland County after completing an emergency repair from storm damage. 

After today, 10 roads will remain closed from storm damage in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, and one road will remain closed in Stafford County. 

Repair work continues to reopen the following roads to traffic this week:
