Spears Creek Church Road reopened Monday after being closed nearly five months due to the historic flooding that hit the state in October.
Spears Creek Church Road carries more than 10,000 vehicles a day, according to the Transportation Department. The road was closed from Jacobs Millpond Road to Woodcreek Farms Road.
The road was closed due to a breach in a nearby dam. Transportation Department engineers worked to route water under the roadway so it could be reopened.
“Our engineers looked for temporary, emergency repairs to return this road to service as soon as possible,” said Leland Colvin, deputy secretary for engineering. “We are grateful to the community for their support and patience, and want to thank the team that worked so diligently to open the road."
