HALIFAX COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Residents and travelers in Halifax County may have experienced delays in the area of Route 729 on Christmas Eve morning.

The Virginia Department of Transportation said Route 729 was closed in both directions due to an “incident.” It is unclear what the incident was.

VDOT said the closure was in the vicinity of Dan River Church Road, Forland Drive, Route 716, and Route 1323.

A dispatcher with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office would only confirm the road closure but would provide no further details.
