Emergency sewer repair in Richmond running past deadline, will likely affect rush hour traffic

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — An emergency sewer repair in Richmond’s Near West End is running past its 4 p.m. deadline and will likely affect traffic during rush hour.

The location of the repairs is on Huguenot Road, just past the University of Richmond. Due to one-lane traffic in both directions, officials say there may be backups along Huguenot in the Westhampton area of the city.

The contractor is expected to be finished at around 5:30 p.m.
