VIRGINIA BEACH -- The 5200 block of Princess Anne Road, east of Kempsville Road, was closed in both directions for 6-10 hours Friday after a piece of construction equipment began to sink.

Police say the excavator began to sink and damaged a gas line.

Fire officials say both westbound lanes of the road are now open from Newton Road to Kempsville Road. Only one eastbound lane will stay open for the next 24 hours as crews work to repair the gas line the excavator collapsed onto.
