From RICHMOND, Va. Department of Public Works

Approximately 30 percent of the plans for the Shockoe Valley Streets Improvement Project will be available for viewing at a public meeting on Thursday, May 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Martin Luther King Middle School at 1000 Mosby St. Attendees also will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out comment forms.

Construction is expected to begin in 2021. When the project is completed in summer 2024 there will be four additional roundabouts in the city:

  • Oliver Hill Way and Venable Street
  • Venable and 18th streets
  • Mosby and Venable streets
  • Mosby and O streets

Additionally, new traffic signals will be installed at 17th and Broad streets and there are plans to convert streets from one-way to two-way at 18th Street and Oliver Hill Way from Balding Street to Broad Street.

All of the enhancements are designed to promote environmental sustainability and economic development in the Shockoe Valley, Union Hill and Church Hill, as well as improve multi-modal accessibility, safety, connectivity, mobility and circulation.

City engineers say the Shockoe Valley Streets Improvement Project will provide another connection to downtown through the Leigh Street viaduct.

The $28 million project is fully funded through federal Smart Scale Funds.

From neighborhood offline convos we’d especially love to see and hear from folks concerned about how these changes will impact Vision Zero goals!

“The $28 million project is fully funded through federal Smart Scale Funds.”

I hope I am not the only one bothered by this method of sending money to the federal government for them to send it back to the localities. Some day we will elect a Congress that will roll back this madness.

There’s a southbound delay ALL DAY by the stoopid VCU bus that parks in the right lane picking up VCU parking lot riders. Removing that dood would solve a lot of probs.
