PATRICK CO. (WSLS 10) -- V-DOT has closed a portion of Route 631 in Patrick County because a large pipe that carries the South Mayo River has washed out.

About 1.5 miles of Route 631 (Dobyns Road) between Route 644 (Peters Creek Drive) and Route 647 (Little Dan River Road) is closed to through traffic. It's expected to be closed for about two or three weeks until the pipe can be replaced.

Detour signs for drivers will be set up around the closure.
