Eight roads around Richmond could soon have bike lanes. The Dept. of Public Works identified the candidatesnow, they want community insight. Read more about the proposal + take a survey to share your thoughts.

DPW includes enhancing bicycle + pedestrian infrastructure in its seasonal paving and resurfacing program. Once the corridors are decided on, implementation will be summer 2022-spring 2023.

Of the eight corridors, one is in Northside, one is in Church Hill, two are in Southside, and four are in Scott’s Addition.

Marshall Street, Moore Street, and Norfolk Street are all included amongst the Scotts Addition corridors. A stretch of North Sheppard Street from Broad Street to Clay Street is also proposed. The neighborhood has been the object of criticism for its lack of pedestrian infrastructure since a 2019 study identified 60+ missing or inadequate sidewalks.

The other proposed corridors are:

  • Admiral Street/School Street from Lombardy Street to Chamberlayne Avenue
  • German School Road from Glenway Drive to Midlothian Turnpike
  • North 25th Street from Main Street to Marshall Street
  • Warwick Road/Carnation Street from Hull Street Road to Brookline Street

Bonus bike news: DPW also has ongoing projects along 49th Street, Westover Hills Boulevard, Park Drive, and Blanton Avenue.
