Huguenot Bridge traffic delays Saturday
There will be alternating lanes closed on the north end of the Huguenot Memorial Bridge from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, June 16. Crews will be removing guardrail and applying asphalt pavement for the upcoming transition to the new section of the Huguenot Bridge, weather permitting. Expect delays of up to five minutes as flaggers direct alternating lanes of traffic through the work zone.
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 Road – or – use Powhite Parkway (toll) east into Richmond.
• Southbound Huguenot Road – River Road west to Chippenham Parkway (Route 150) south to Huguenot Road.
VDOT anticipates traffic will shift from the old Huguenot Bridge to the new bridge in late June or early July following final inspection of the new structure and approaches. The public will be notified prior to the traffic shift.

Halligan blends local theme with tasty classics
Owner Shawn Gregory, a retired Henrico firefighter, outfitted the Halligan West location with a 1967 fire truck that his own father rode in his early career at the Highland Springs station.
Among other firefighter memorabilia incorporated into the theme are buckets and firefighter helmets suspended from the ceiling to serve as lamps, and fire hoses wound into the railing of the patio. The walls are covered with tools, photos, badges, and memorabilia from fire companies around the country, and Gregory rents a small "VIP" party deck on top of the fire engine and donates proceeds to charity, including a burn foundation. > Read more.
