We’ve had some reader comments about the closure on Dock St and the resulting traffic being funneled onto E. Main St. You can see the NBC 12 article below in which they interviewed a few pedestrians in the area and witnessed some of the issues first hand.

The City of Richmond is saying that the work causing the closure on Dock St. should be completed (weather permitting) on October 2nd. However, we would like to encourage any residents with issues to please reach out to the city via RVA 311 or to your city council member. I know that personally, loving to walk everywhere I can, that being a pedestrian can be tricky. Not a lot of people like to stop for pedestrian crosswalks in Richmond even though it’s the law.

What’s your experience? Have you had issues at this particular part of Main St? What about in the neighborhood in general?
