RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Capitol Square is closed following the United States Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Earlier in the day, the Department of General Services said it would install additional protective fencing around Capitol Square.

DGS has previously taken similar steps in the past to secure the grounds due to protests.
