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.

Gordon N Ball, The Hanna Group, and the City of Richmond is proud to have two lanes open in each on the Officer Bradley A. Moody Underpass project. We have listened to the community’s desire to have one lane open on each side North Bound and South Bound on Marina Bay Parkway to accommodate traffic while construction continues on-going until finished in about two months. Thank you for your patience, understanding and input during the past 20 months during construction.

The sidewalks will not be open at least not until the middle of October. We apologize for the bad news. All railings have not been installed for the sidewalks yet.

The overall completion date for the project is Fall 2015. There will be one lane opened in each direction starting July 3rd, 2015.
