Indian Road (Route 605) in Gloucester reopened to traffic Tuesday morning between Fary’s Mill Road and Mohican Drive as Virginia Department of Transportation crews completed an emergency repair. A portion of the road was closed July 31 after heavy rain damaged several drainage pipes and washed out a portion of the road, according to VDOT spokesperson Kelly Hannon. Prior to the washout, she said 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. Above, crews remove the barricades Tuesday morning that had been blocking traffic from the washed out portion of roadway. Below, workers put the finishing touches on the emergency repair project.
