Press release from VDOT
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Crews will be repairing potholes on the Huguenot Bridge Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Drivers can expect periodic delays of up to 15 minutes in each direction during repairs. To avoid delays, VDOT recommends drivers use the following alternate routes:
REMINDER – Traffic shift and reduced speed limit in the work zone starts Saturday morning.
There will be a new traffic pattern just north of the Huguenot Bridge beginning Saturday, February 12 at 7 a.m. (weather permitting). The traffic shift will remain in place through late summer 2012.
Cary Street/Route 147 south (traffic going towards River Road and the Huguenot Bridge):
Huguenot Road/Route 147 north (traffic going over the Huguenot Bridge to the River Road/Huguenot Road intersection):
Once the traffic shift is in place, the speed limit between Halesworth Road (south of the bridge) and the River Road/Huguenot Road intersection (north of the bridge) will be reduced from 45 to 35 mph for the duration of the project (fall 2013). Drivers are encouraged to drive carefully through the work zone and be alert to changing traffic patterns, equipment entering/exiting the work zone and construction crews.
