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 late May/early June 2015.
During the week of February 16th, additional main retaining wall and sidewalk retaining wall concrete pours were placed. With these sections completed, the only remaining retaining wall construction to complete is located underneath the bridge. In addition, crews began establishing subgrade of the roadway north of the bridge to the recently-placed asphalt at the Meeker/Marina Bay Parkway intersection (i.e. the “north conform”). This work includes layout of the roadway median. Work also continued on the pump station valves and pipes, and electrical installation along the raised sidewalks.
For the week of February 23rd, crews will assemble formwork for the final main retaining wall pours located under the bridge, continue work on roadway subgrade and median, and continue work on pump station mechanical components.
