Lexington, SC (WOLO) — We have an update to a story we have been following since it broke earlier this evening. Lexington Police say one Lexington road has been reopened just a few hours after it was closed over some concerns the rain was causing in the area.

According to Lexington Police, South Church Street was closed between Roberts Street and Gibson Road. Authorities say they were worried about the safety of the road because of a comprised pond dam in the Church Street Commons neighborhood.

According to a post on twitter, Officials say the Utilities Department worked to drain the pond in hopes of alleviating pressure. The road has since been reopened to traffic.
