Traffic in one part of Nitro is moving smoother a day after a massive sinkhole caused traffic to be redirected.
Crews finished repairing a sinkhole that shut down part of the roadway Tuesday.
One lane of Route 25 in front of the Twin City Bible Church was closed after a water main break caused the road there to collapse.
The closure caused even more of a headache than usual because that road is one of the detours drivers have to take to get around the now closed Saint Albans-Nitro bridge.
The bridge is expected to be closed until November, for repairs.

Police are directing traffic in the area around the sink hole. Route 25 is one of the detour routes around the Nitro-St. Albans Bridge, which closed on Monday and will not reopen until November. Police said the hole is causing some added backups.
