City officials on Thursday are planning to unveil proposals for transportation improvements in South Richmond.

The first community meeting to introduce the project will be held at Booker T. Anderson Community Center at 960 South 47th Street. The meeting runs from 6 to 8 p.m.

The so-called South Richmond Transportation Connectivity Plan aims to improve transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and auto connectivity in South Richmond.

According to Richmond’s Senior Planner Hector Rojas, “This initial community meeting will introduce the project, present best practices for multi-modal design and program solutions, and offer community members the opportunity to bring their questions and concerns.”

A Caltrans grant is partially funding the project, Rojas said. Visit the project’s website here.
