Workers from the city of Charleston and Precision Pump & Valve Service used a truck pump Friday afternoon to help remove high water that closed the Virginia Street underpass on the West Side. A pump system hasn’t been able to handle recent heavy rains, and city officials said forecasts of more rain could leave the street closed all weekend. Drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route — either 7th Avenue or Washington Street — for through traffic.
