HAMILTON STATION ROAD CLOSED INDEFINITELY
Detour in place during emergency pipe repairs


WATERFORD – Hamilton Station Road (Route 704) is closed between Route 9 and Clarkes Gap Road until further notice due to a pipe failure, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Tuesday’s heavy rain caused the crossover pipe carrying a tributary of South Fork Catoctin Creek to separate, which in turn caused the pavement to cave in over the pipe.

A detour has been established via Route 9 and Clarkes Gap Road.

Access to the Loudoun County Animal Shelter is not affected by this closure.
