CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Elbow Road at the Chesapeake and Virginia Beach line has reopened after a week-long closure for emergency repairs.

Video from a WAVY viewer showed what appeared to be major damage.

City officials said on Twitter the road was damaged when Hurricane Matthew’s remnants rolled through the Hampton Roads area.
