RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) –  Expect delays driving on Midlothian Turnpike.

The right lane of eastbound Midlothian between German School Road and Covington Road is closed all day, according to an email from Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Dawn Eischen.

Eischen said the pavement is damaged there and the cold weather has made it hard for contractors to apply the patching materials used to make the fix.

Those workers must wait until it has warmed up a bit before they can patch the pavement, Eishen said.
