RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Broad Street in Richmond will be getting a makeover, starting today. Several GRTC buses will be on detour off of the road, with some stops closed.

GRTC announced Wednesday which temporary stops will replace those that will be closed for the first phase of construction on Broad Street.

Construction crews will be working on Broad Street to repave it starting with the section between 3rd Street and Belvidere Street 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through June.

GRTC said the paving part of the project is scheduled for five phases, with construction only stopping for rain or mechanical issues.

Paving will start in the westbound lanes and change to eastbound lanes at the end of each phase.

The City of Richmond will be coloring GRTC bus lanes red so they stand out more in hopes of alerting drivers to stay out of the lane to improve pedestrian safety.

The city is also planning for four other projects including replacing sidewalks and waterlines and upgrading traffic signals.

Dakota Williams with Ledbury clothing store said construction in the area seems constant and parking issues can turn away customers.

“It’s just a really tight street anyway. It’s a very small street, even with all the lanes. But, I mean, you have the entire bus lane in there. You can find parking. But finding parking near where you’re actually going can be difficult,” Williams said.
