Marina Bay Parkway between Meeker Avenue and Regatta Boulevard was reopened last week after more than 22 months of construction on the Officer Bradley A. Moody Memorial Underpass.
The roadway was shut down and traffic was rerouted starting Sept. 3, 2013 for the construction of the underpass, which allows traffic to flow under existing railroad tracks.
The project, which was delayed because AT&T was slow to relocate utility lines, according to city officials, frustrated Marina Bay businesses who reported a loss of customers as a result of the road closure.
On Thursday, city officials posted photos (including those posted in this story) of the reopening of one lane in both directions on Marina Bay Parkway.
“We have listened to the community’s desire to have one lane open on each side North Bound and South Bound on Marina Bay Parkway to accommodate traffic while construction continues,” said Jacqueline Majors, project outreach coordinator.
Construction will be completed in another two months, Majors added.
The family of Officer Moody attended a dedication for the reopening Thursday afternoon during which they were escorted by Richmond police through the underpass. The officer was killed in 2008 after crashing his patrol car while responding to a call.
In May, Moody’s wife and children visited the site in order to imprint their hands in the sidewalk, project officials said.
