Richmond officials have announced intent to repair a number of streets using SB 1 funding.

The city plans to improve asphalt repairs, curbs, gutters, drains, sidewalks, curb ramps, traffic stripping, and regulatory signs of portions of the following streets:

  • 7th Street from Ripley Avenue to railroad tracks north of Lincoln Avenue
  • 8th Street from Ohio Avenue to Lincoln Avenue
  • Marina Way South form Wright Avenue to Ohio Avenue

The project, which appears on the agenda’s consent calendar for tonight’s Richmond City Council meeting, is estimated to begin in January 2021 and end in November 2021. The pavement repairs are predicted to last for 20 years, the city said.

Also set for pavement rehab is Castro Ranch Road from Olinda Road to the city limit east of Country View Drive. That work is expected to run from August 2020 to December 2020.

These aren’t necessarily all street rehab projects going on. But to receive SB 1 funding, the city are required to identify projects that will benefit from the funds.
