PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Portsmouth City Hall was closed Thursday and Friday due to a water main break.
The break affected the second through fifth floors of the building.
While the break had been secured as of 8 p.m. Wednesday, staff was still surveying the extent of the damage.
Officials say that the Voting Registration Office will be open on the first floor for early voting on Friday. In addition, the Churchland branch of the Treasurer’s Office will be open both days. The Churchland Branch is located at 4934 High Street West.
In May 2019, a pipe also burst in the nearby Portsmouth Police Department building. Crews were brought in Wednesday to extract water and precondition against mold.
On Saturday, the city confirmed City Hall would reopen Monday, Sept. 20.
