Lambert’s Cove road in Tisbury reopened to all traffic Tuesday, more than two months after sinkholes and a washout forced the town to close the roadway at Smith Brook.

Contractors have replaced the damaged culvert that formerly carried the brook beneath the road, as well as the headwalls on either side, one of which is located on the Cranberry Acres property owned by the Vineyard Open Land Foundation.

Lambert’s Cove road had been closed since mid-December, when heavy rains led to the washout. Town officials forged a mutual aid agreement with West Tisbury first responders to cover Tisbury residents living near the closure.

Before work could begin to repair the roadway, contractors had to pump out the flooded area and excavate to find the crushed metal culvert, which has been replaced by a new plastic pipe.
