Burial ground discovered near I-95 & Lewistown Rd.

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - VDOT is reworking plans to raise the Lewistown Bridge over I-95 in Hanover after discovering a burial ground.

They say it's not uncommon to discover plots like this.

Archeologists are now working to figure out just how large the site is.

Constructions is still three years away, so there's plenty of time to make adjustments.
