Lane closure on Midlothian Turnpike

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-Southside drivers may want to avoid a portion of Midlothian Turnpike Wednesday morning.

Starting at 9 a.m., traffic will be down to one on the westbound side between German School Road and Carnation Street.

This is so crews can work on a water main.

Expect major delays, work isn't expected to wrap up until 4 a.m. Thursday.
