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. The project is intended to resolve long-standing access limitations to the Marina Bay area caused by frequent train crossings. Project completion is scheduled for late 2015.
During the week of October 19th, installation of infill panels for the sidewalk railings commenced and the third of four bridge towers was installed while installation of decorative metal on the bridge continued. Additionally, landscaping installation continued, and modification of the driveway and parking areas at the Crossings commercial complex was completed.
For the week of October 26th, installation of decorative metal will be substantially complete except for lettering on the bridge. Work on the sidewalk east of Marina Bay Parkway between Pierson and Regatta will start, while landscaping work will continue.

July 3rd, 2015 - Partial Opening of Road
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.
Today was a very special day for the Moody family. At 3:30pm, GNB opened a lane in each direction on the Moody Underpass project. In HONOR of Officer Bradley A. Moody, his brother Officer James Moody a RPD, his Mother, sister-in-law, along with his niece and nephew were escorted by the RPD and fellow RPD brothers of Officer Bradley A. Moody through the underpass in dedication to Officer Moody. We will have an official ribbon cutting ceremony upon completion of the underpass.
GNB contractor will be on-site on Saturday, November 14th, from 8am - 5pm finishing up needed work on the Moody Underpass.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to a completed project very soon. If you have any questions, please contact Jacqueline Majors, Community Outreach at 925-949-6196.
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. Additionally, there is construction taking place above which can cause serious bodily damage or death to anyone who attempts to walk through.
The overall completion date for the project is Fall 2015. There will be one lane opened in each direction starting July 3rd, 2015.
