Parts of Riverside Drive, River Road to close today

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There are traffic alerts for drivers who take Riverside Drive or River Road in Richmond.

The Dept. of Public Utilities will be closing a portion of Riverside Drive just east of the Rockfalls Drive intersection today at 8 a.m.

The closure is for installation of a large pipe. Crews are expected to finish work by Jan. 20.

On River Road, traffic will be reduced to one lane near the intersection of Cary Street and Three Chopt so crews can work on a gas line.

The work will be done between 7 p.m. and Midnight on Monday and Tuesday evenings, and possibly Wednesday night as well.
