NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – A major roadway in Newport News is back open after emergency repairs.

Lou Thurston with the Newport News Police Department said the southbound lanes of Warwick Boulevard were closed at Woodhaven Road for much of Thursday.

Nancy Munnikhuysen with the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) said crews stopped a small leak in the pipeline, and had to close both southbound lanes to gain access to the pipe. Crews repaved that stretch of road after completing the repairs. 

Thurston said the road was back open by 5:15 p.m.
