RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Your drive to work could get a little complicated Tuesday morning if you like to use Forest Hill Avenue.

City crews will be working on a stretch of Forest Hill Avenue on the westbound side from Roanoke Street down to 47th Street for the next two months.

The road will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. everyday.

Of course if you've driven in this area recently, you've seen the big signs flashing along the side of the road telling you about the upcoming work.

City crews tell us they are closing the road so they can replace the aging cast iron gas mains underneath the road.
