One lane open westbound on Midlothian Turnpike

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Expect to see more traffic on part of Midlothian Turnpike Friday - right where crews are working on a multi-year project.

If you are heading west on Midlothian toward Chesterfield,  get ready to see more of those orange barrels out there.

Both the right and center lane on this side of the road between Labrook and Old Warwick will be closed from 9 until 3 Friday for repairs.

This is all part of the flood management project that is on-going right now.

For an alternate route, you can take German School Rd. to Jahnke Rd. to Chippenham, back to Midlothian.
