The Officer Bradley A. Moody Memorial Underpass project is a roadway undercrossing in place of an existing grade crossing at Marina Bay Parkway between Regatta Boulevard and Meeker Avenue in Richmond. This grade separation project will reduce traffic congestion and allow emergency vehicles to access the South Richmond Shoreline area unimpeded. The project would improve access to proposed Water Emergency Transit Authority (WETA) ferries and improve air quality by reducing emissions of idling vehicles.

The Bradley A. Moody Memorial Underpass Project involves the construction of a roadway underpass on Marina Bay Parkway between Meeker Avenue and Regatta Boulevard, and is intended to resolve long-standing access limitations to the Marina Bay area caused by frequent train crossings. In early September 2013, Marina Bay Parkway was closed to traffic. This closure is planned to remain in place until early May 2015.
During the week of November 10th, concrete was poured for an additional section of retaining wall, as well as three of four bridge “shear keys”. Pump station ladders and platform were installed and utility work to the pump station continued. Also, work in preparation for concrete at the Meeker/Marina Bay Parkway intersection continued.
For the week of November 17th, an additional retaining wall concrete pour is scheduled and sidewalk and curb and gutter installation will continue at the Meeker/Marina Bay Parkway intersection. Work on landscape retaining walls at the Jetty/Marina Bay Parkway intersection will continue in advance of paving for both north and south intersections tentatively scheduled for mid-December.
