Benjamin Harrison Bridge is closed until November

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd hit the James Friday for a few hours. Left the Burg at 0430. Got all the way up to the bridge only to see "Bridge Closed". Turned around and launched at the Chick State Park. Never fished for blues here but fished 4 good looking spots with nairy a bite so I cruised up river a few miles and enjoyed the morning. The bridge, according to my Google search....will be down from 21 Aug until November. I'd say they started early! I guess people's options will be the shady arse boat ramp down by the power lines for the James or launching on the Chick and head up. Will have to break out a map.
