After a six-month emergency repair to a part of the Danville Expressway, the busy roadward is back to normal.
The Virginia Department of Transportation has opened all lanes of U.S. 29 near Barkers Branch and lifted all travel restrictions, according to the city.
An 84-inch underground pipe failed late last year causing VDOT to shut down the northbound lanes. A detour was in place at first, then crews rerouted northbound traffic to a southbound traffic lane.
In May, the northbound lanes reopened, but southbound traffic was still restricted to one lane to allow for repairs to the southbound bridge, the city reported.
