After a long wait, the “Foundry Park Bridge” was laid into place Friday morning. See my story on Richmond.com:

This is the fifth connection to the Brown’s Island property, which is separated from the north banks of the James by the Haxall Canal. Initially, another bridge might seem excessive, but after talking with Alexander Dahm of Venture Richmond, the need became more clear.
