Baxter Road Flooding Due to Blocked Sewer Drain

The drain was temporarily blocked due to construction in the area and shouldn't be a problem in future storms.

The flooding that overtook a portion of Baxter Road following storms late Tuesday night should only be a one-time occurence, according to the Chesterfield Police Department. 

CPD Public Information Officer Capt. Steve Lewis said the overflow that closed down Baxter Road between Manor Creek and Isleview resulted from the temporary blockage of a sewer drain.

The drain was stopped up due to some construction that was going on in the area. As soon as the drain was cleared, the water level receeded, Lewis said.

"It had nothing to do with the design of the roadway and it shouldn't be a concern in the future," Lewis said. 

The road was closed after the flooding washed debris on the roadway around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night and re-opened at approximately 6:30 am the next morning.
