VDOT crews completed emergency repair and drainage pipe replacement between Fary’s Mill Road and Mohican Drive

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. ˗˗ Route 605 (Indian Road) in Gloucester County reopened to through traffic today between Fary’s Mill Road and Mohican Drive as Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews completed an emergency repair.

VDOT closed Indian Road on July 31 after heavy rain damaged several drainage pipes and washed out a portion of the road.

Prior to the washout, the drainage structure was a triple line of 48-inch diameter concrete pipes. VDOT replaced these with two 48-inch diameter concrete pipes and a single 60-inch diameter concrete pipe to enhance drainage in the area. New end walls were also installed. 

According to a recent traffic count, approximately 1,000 vehicles a day travel Indian Road.
