Huguenot Bridge weekend traffic delays through August

Press release from VDOT

RICHMOND, VA - Drivers can expect delays on the Huguenot Bridge on Saturdays and Sundays beginning July 23 through August 7, as contractors continue to install piles for the new bridge.

Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., southbound traffic on the Huguenot Bridge will be stopped periodically for up to 10 minutes to allow the contractor to monitor vibrations on the existing bridge while they install piles for the new bridge. There will be no changes to northbound traffic.

Southbound drivers will be impacted the following weekends:

  • July 23-24
  • July 30-31
  • August 6-7

To avoid delays, VDOT recommends southbound drivers use the following alternate route:

  • Southbound Huguenot Road – River Road west to Chippenham Parkway (Route 150) south to Huguenot Road
