Richmond removes median in front of police headquarters to improve access


A stretch of the median on Regatta Boulevard in front of the Richmond Police Department HQ has been removed, meaning cars can make a left out of or into the facility for the first time since the department relocated there from Civic Center Plaza.
The need for the easier access is magnified by the upcoming closure on Sept. 3 of a block of Marina Way Parkway for 18 months to build an underpass under the rail line between Regatta and Meeker Avenue. The closure is in addition to train traffic on two lines that can at times limit access to and from the shoreline area.
