Mosque ground breaking begins this Saturday

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - It's been a long road filled with controversy and debate, but on Saturday there will be a ground breaking ceremony for the first Muslim mosque in Henrico.

The 10,000 square foot mosque will be built on Impala Drive near the lakeside area.

Saturday's ground breaking is set for 11:45 a.m. Some residents fought the rezoning of the land citing worries about traffic congestion.
