We came last Saturday and left at 11am from 20 miles West of Richmond. I always run 460 route. No bridge at all 3/1/2 hours later. From milepost 3 to 9 is stop and go as stop lights not synced to traffic or just that much on the road and lost 45 minutes. From Whalebone to 5 miles outside Rodanthe was highway speed. Crawled 10mph or less until past Campgrounds, then smooth sailing to Avon.
Have fun and be safe. The week flies.
This gives me hope (other than there being "no bridge at all"
). We always try to leave early and always fail! Coming from north of Richmond, and going to try the 460 route as well.
