Front Street Mobility Project to Create Detours in Downtown Richmond

(RICHMOND) - Detours for the Downtown Richmond Area are planned as the next phase of construction for the Front Street project is set to commence the first week of January 2024. 

During construction of Richmond Parkway, a one-way southbound direction only detour will be implemented. Traffic will flow from City of Richmond towards the Justice Center in a southbound direction through the construction zone. Northbound traffic on Richmond Parkway will be detoured west down Golfview Drive to Thompsons Road. From Thompsons Road, traffic will reach Austin St./FM 762 Loop where the detour ends.  Northbound traffic on Richmond Pkwy. from SH-59/I-69 will still be able to get to the Justice Center as the detour is only intended for those attempting to get to the downtown City of Richmond area. 

“We understand the impact this detour will have on residents in the area and the hundreds of folks who visit this area each day to engage with County services,” said Precinct 4 Commissioner Dexter McCoy. “But the long-term benefit of expanding this two-lane road to four lanes will be tremendous, so I urge folks to plan ahead as we move this mobility project toward completion.”
