Road work to close ramps on Powhite near Midlothian Turnpike

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The ramps and collector-distributor lanes from Powhite Parkway (Rt. 60) west to Midlothian Turnpike (Rt. 60) and Arboretum Pkwy will close Wednesday night as part of an ongoing resurfacing project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

"Crews are patching concrete ahead of an asphalt overlay application scheduled within the next few weeks," a VDOT spokesperson said. "All work is weather dependent."

The ramp closure is scheduled to run Wednesday, September 7 and Thursday, September 8 from 7 p.m.-6 a.m.

The Midlothian Tnpk. exit ramp toll plaza (located on the collector-distributor lanes) will also be closed for this work. Drivers can use the following posted detour to avoid any additional tolls:
• From Powhite Pkwy. (Rt. 76) west, take Jahnke Rd. (Rt. 686) east to Boulders Pkwy. south back to Midlothian Tnpk. (Rt. 60).

Drivers can also use Chippenham Pkwy. to Midlothian Tnpk. as an alternate route.
