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 December 8th, work was limited to the stripping of retaining wall forms and concrete curb and gutter work at the Meeker/Marina Bay Parkway and Jetty/Marina Bay Parkway intersections. Severe weather prevented further progress and flooded the site, requiring extensive dewatering which will continue through the weekend.
For the week of December 15th, and weather permitting, an additional retaining wall concrete pour is scheduled as well as the first concrete pour for the sidewalk retaining walls. Pump station pipe system installation will commence, and concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter will be completed at the Meeker/Marina Bay Parkway and Jetty/Marina Bay Parkway intersections.

GNB will not be working on the project for several days due to the heavy rains and the safety of the workers and contractors. Please be safe and aware of your surroundings. We apologize for the delay in getting the lights fixed. We are currently working with the city to get the lights working. We also want to assure you that the construction site will stay safe. Thank you for understanding.
The completion date to have the road opened is May 2015
