HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A gas leak that shutdown southbound Parham Road as well as the ramps from I-64 Sunday night is expected to impact drivers through the Monday morning commute.

- English Hills Drive to Parham Road southbound – road closed
- The exit ramp from I-64 west to Parham Road Southbound – closed.
- The exit ramp from I-64 east to Parham Road – only southbound traffic being allowed to access Parham Road
"Authorities from Richmond City Gas are on scene and are actively attempting to locate the leak so that they may make the necessary repairs," Lt. Richard Cosby with Henrico Police said.
