Chesterfield erects fence around old Cloverleaf Mall

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A big fence is going up Wednesday around the old Cloverleaf Mall.

Chesterfield leaders are trying to keep vandals from tearing up the soon-be-demolished building.

Illegal dumping is also a major problem.

This week we spotted a bathtub and couch left in the parking lot.

After the fence goes up, no one will be able to get through the parking lot, except to get to the businesses along Midlothian Turnpike.
