RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond residents will have the chance to weigh in on and review eight bike lanes proposed for the city. The Department of Public Works will hold virtual meetings from Thursday, Sept. 3 to Thursday, Sept. 17.
The bike lane locations were determined several months ago after a series of virtual meetings were held to discuss the project. After more than 800 responses these are the proposed locations:
- Allen Avenue from Colorado Avenue to Leigh Street
- Belmont Avenue from Chesterfield County Line to Walmsley Boulevard
- Broad Rock Road from Belt Boulevard to Forest Hill Avenue / Bainbridge Street
- Fairfield Avenue from Mosby Street to 25th Street
- Forest Hill Avenue from 41st Street to Dorchester Road
- Magnolia Street from 1st Avenue to Rady Street
- Rowen Avenue from Triff Street to 5th Street Bride
The bike lane project is in conjunction with the Maintenance Resurfacing Program. According to the Department of Public Works, the lanes and pavement markings will be installed as paving takes place to significantly reduce costs. Some lanes will be implemented this fall while others won’t start until the spring.
