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.

Project Funding

Contra Costa Transportation Authority, Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and the Successor Agency to the Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency.

Project Updates

Last Updated: October 4th, 2014

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 October 6th, concrete was poured for two additional sections of retaining walls and crews graded the area in the vicinity of the pump station. Concrete curb and gutter, sidewalk and streetlight electrical work continued at the intersection of Jetty/Pierson and Marina Bay. Additionally, conduit was placed and wires run to allow the streetlights along Marina Bay Parkway south of the closure to be energized. The meter release to was issued by the City, and PG&E was asked to prioritize the service start. PG&E has stated power will be restored within the next two weeks.

For the week of October 13th, one retaining wall pour is scheduled, electrical conduits will be installed at the pump station, and grading at the Meeker intersection with Marina Bay Parkway (i.e. the “north conform”) will continue. The north conform is being constructed in two phases. The second phase will commence October 13th and will entail the closing of the Marina Bay Parkway entrance to “The Crossings” commercial development for approximately six weeks. All businesses within the complex will remain accessible by the Meeker Avenue entrance.

As noted in prior reports, crews are continuing to work to restore power to streetlights on Marina Bay Parkway south of the project. These lights utilized power from a location within the project that required demolition. A proposed new service to power the lights will be installed as part of the project. The contractor is working with PG&E to find a way to energize the lights on an interim basis until the new service is installed.
