Huguenot Bridge weekend installation postponed

RICHMOND, VA - The pile installation work originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday has been postponed until next weekend due to a material delivery delay.

Drivers can expect Huguenot Bridge traffic delays on Saturday and Sunday August 20-21 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Southbound traffic 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.

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

Traffic camera: Huguenot Road/River Road intersection, northeast of the Huguenot Bridge
