Floodwall testing June 7th through June 14th

Traffic will be blocked periodically during the testing.

We all know the real reason for those giant walls is for zombie containment but Richmond Public Utilities is continuing with the farce of calling them “flood walls” and will be testing them next week starting on Saturday. Actual FAQ on the floodwall.
