UPDATE: Part of 460 East in Bedford Closed Due to Sinkhole Has Reopened

Posted: Updated:

Update 6/25 10 p.m.

A VDOT spokesperson told us that around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday the right lane of Route 460 was reopened, after crews spent the day repairing a sinkhole that opened up Sunday night.

A sinkhole on Route 460 East near Applebee's just outside the town of Bedford has the right lane closed at Business Junction Drive.

VDOT is on scene right now, and road crews have been working overnight.

The sinkhole itself is about five feet wide and six feet deep, and is believed to have been caused by a washout from a pipe failure under the road.

Officials say they were first notified about it at around 6 last night.

VDOT says this section of eastbound 460 will likely be closed for most of today.
