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.

In early September 2013, Marina Bay Parkway was closed to traffic. This road closure is planned to remain in place through June 2015, with overall project completion in fall 2015.
During the week of May 11th, concrete was poured for the bridge tower decorative columns and preparation of the roadway for lean concrete base was substantially completed. Additionally, electrical work at the generator building continued, placement of pavers in the roadway median was completed, and installation of cable railing commenced.
For the week of May 18th, roadway lean concrete base will be poured over the course of three days, and generator building interior work will commence.
Project delays encountered during the winter (due primarily to AT&T relocation and heavy rains in December) resulted in a formal “contract days” schedule that would require reopening of the roadway in August 2015, however, the contractor and construction management team are evaluating construction methods that would allow for earlier reopening of a minimum of one lane in each direction in late June, in an effort to reduce impacts to the community. Additional information on this topic is expected to be available in next week’s update.
