Press release below, story coming soon:



Meade Street Bypass Road Project


June to December, 2012


The City of Richmond Successor Agency to the former Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency is pleased to announce the start of work on the Meade Street Bypass Road Project. As shown on the figure below, the work involves closure of Regatta Boulevard east of the existing railroad tracks; construction of the 700 foot long bypass road which will be a 35 foot wide, two-lane road with 5 foot bicycle lanes on each side; due to existing topography construction of the bypass road will require the import of approximately 10,000 cubic yards of soil; construction of the bypass road will also include grading, installation of curb, placing of asphalt, guard rail, signing and striping, electroliers and landscaping improvements. 


Construction is scheduled to begin in early June with completion anticipated by December, 2012.  The existing crossing at Regatta will be closed.  Signs indicating detour routes for traffic during periods of closure will be in place before work begins.  


Notice of closure and this General Information Notice will be posted at various locations on site and provided to the Marina Bay Neighborhood Council approximately two weeks prior to a closure.  Project work hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  The contractor has been instructed to minimize dust, noise, and any other inconveniences to adjacent businesses during the construction period.  


Please contact Craig K. Murray, Project Manager, with the City of Richmond at 510-307-8188 or email craig_murray@ci.richmond.ca.us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this project.
