A road heavily affected by flooding has reopened in Virginia

Route 619 (High Knob) in Scott County is now open to traffic, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. 

Michell Earl with VDOT provided the following information about the road via email: 

The road incurred damage in February during heavy rains, and VDOT closed the road at that time. The slope below the road needed to be repaired, as well as replacement of a drainage tile and removal of damaged trees. Glass Machinery, Jonesville, performed the needed repairs and finished up yesterday. The work took approximately one week. VDOT’s geologist will review the slide within a month to determine if additional repairs are needed.
