HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Richmond City Department of Utilities crews are running behind on the construction project that has closed parts of Elko Road for a couple of months. The department says they were supposed to finish up the utility work by Halloween.
While most of the work is happening during the day, it can get a little hectic since the work is happening so close to Elko Middle School.
Here are some ways around the construction:
- Northbound Elko Rd. (Rt. 156): Take Elko Tract Rd. (Rt. 380) west to Technology Blvd. south to Portugee Rd. east back to Elko Rd. (Rt. 156).
- Southbound Elko Rd. (Rt. 156): Take Portugee Rd. west to Technology Blvd. north to Elko Tract Rd. (Rt. 380) east back to Elko Rd. (Rt. 156)
