Broad Street Corridor

1509-1547 E Broad St, Richmond, VA 23219, USA


Posted 40 months ago

This stretch of sidewalk on Broad Street from 14th Street to 17th Street needs to be improved.  While the entire area does not lie within the Shockoe boundary many residents of this area use this stretch of sidewalk to commute to work or school at MCV.  This is a dangerous and uncomfortable area to walk because of entering interstate traffic and the lack of barriers between you and the onslaught of traffic.  Sidewalks should be widened, streetscape improved with trees, and pedestrian buttons that activate flashing crosswalk signs should be installed to avoid future accidents.

At this juncture, I will pass your comment on poor lighting on to the two firms involved with design engineering responsibilities for the City for their consideration. Thanks for your thoughts.

There is hope. This morning at a Shockoe Partnership Board of Directors meeting, members learned the City of Richmond with VDOT funding support is letting a contract for engineering design services to develop a "Gateway" project along E. Broad street from 18th Street up the hill to MCV medical campus. The project contemplates streetscape enhancements including sidewalks in this corridor. The design work and plans review would take about one year before any construction contract could be bid. As plans evolve, I will keep you posted.
