NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The eastbound lane of the Brambleton Avenue underpass, which had been closed since Hurricane Matthew due to flooding, has finally opened back up.

Virginia Beach Blvd., Brambleton Ave. underpasses back open after flooding

During the storm, a pump at that underpass couldn’t keep up, likely because of a failed electrical system.

Repairs to the pump station damaged during the storm are now complete, according to city officials.
