Harrell Road reopened

Harrell Road in Falmouth has reopened, the Virginia Department of Transportation announced a short time ago.

A broken drainage gate at the railroad underpass forced the closure of the road on Sunday.

The popular cut-through between Forbes Street and Deacon Road had to be fixed before it was reopened.

A new drainage system was built at the underpass in 2011 to help cut down on the frequent floods at the low-lying spot.
