T-Rex going up in Hanover County

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Hanover County will soon have a huge dinosaur on the side of the road.

The Board of Supervisors just approved a 24-foot high Tyrannosaurus Rex to go up on Route 30, or King's Dominion Boulevard.

This is all part of a new promotion for a dinosaur exhibit that will be opening soon.
