ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - A portion of Camelot drive in Albemarle County is closed due to a water main break, and will remain closed until it can be repaired.

The stretch of Camelot drive is near the road’s intersection with Route 29, just north of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport.

Virginia’s Department of Transportation (VDOT) reported the closure on Sunday. The break was discovered on Saturday afternoon, and a Rivanna Water and Sewer authority team has been dispatched to repair it. The team will resume their repair work on Monday morning, but the road will have to be closed until the break is repaired.

Once complete, the road will have to be repaved. After that, VDOT will reopen the road.


CULPEPER — A water main break has closed Route 1510 (Camelot Drive) just west of its intersection with Route 29 (Seminole Trail) in northern Albemarle County. The Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority must repair the water main before the road can reopen to traffic.

The break in the 12-inch water main was discovered on Saturday afternoon. An RWSA crew will resume the repair work at 7 a.m. Monday. Once the repair is complete and the road is repaved the Virginia Department of Transportation will reopen the road.
