Route 863 Bridge inspection complete

LYNCHBURG— Traffic should be flowing smoothly on Route 863 (R and L Smith Drive) in Pittsylvania County. Lane closures that were in place earlier today have been lifted.

Initially, the road was completely closed from Route 744 North to Route 745 North/South due to a multi-vehicle accident early this morning. Following the accident clean up, damage was discovered to the concrete railing of the bridge over the railroad and an inspection was ordered.

As a result of the findings of the inspection, the road was reopened and the repairs will be made in the near future.
