Update: The bridge was finally re-opened around 12:15 p.m.
Huguenot Road/Route 147 (Richmond/Henrico) – The Hugenot Bridge remains closed following material problems during an overnight repair and will remain closed until the repair is completed – possibly two more hours [email time: 9:13 am]. The epoxy used to repair a bearing seat is not curing as expected and traffic or movement over the bridge could further delay the process or potentially result in a safety issue. To avoid delays, VDOT recommends drivers use the following alternate routes:
Northbound Huguenot Road – Chippenham Parkway (Route 150) north over the Willey Bridge to River Road east to Huguenot Roador use Powhite Parkway (toll) east into Richmond
Southbound Huguenot Road– River Road west to Chippenham Parkway (Route 150) south to Huguenot Road
