CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — A water leak on Battlefield Boulevard is expected to close the road for several hours.

Chesapeake officials posted a picture to Twitter Monday of the leak, noting that repairs could take three to six hours.

North Battlefield Boulevard will be closed on the southbound side near Edna Street as a result. The northbound lanes of Battlefield at Hillcrest Parkway have reopened following an earlier closure.

Motorists will be guided around the work or can use the Route 168 Bypass as an alternate.
