  1. A couple of pictures from today.
  2. "Starting tonight, Oct. 5 at 6 p.m., East Leigh St. will be blocked off eastbound between 10th and 11th Streets, and 11th St. between Clay and Leigh Streets, for a crane installation." https://rvahub.com/2018/10/05/lane-closures-on-mcv-campus/
  3. Ashland is going to start work on their section of the Ashland Trolley line Trail: http://www.herald-progress.com/town-council-approves-strategic-plan-for-trolley-line-projects-2017-completion-date/
  4. Good news, VDOT is starting work on the Huguenot and River Rd. intersection near UR: http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/richmond/intersection_improvements_at_huguenot_road.asp This should make it easier to get from the Huguenot Bridge to the old road (Gambles Mill) between UR and CCVA, then you can cut up through the neighborhood to Three Chopt and Grove. Richmond also has plans in the works for a shared use path on Jahnke: http://www.richmondgov.com/PublicWorks/JahnkeRoadImprovementProject.aspx So in a couple of years, things should/might be better.
  5. One more for the list... Final Gravity* (Henrico - Lakeside)
  6. So far so good. Lots of rain, flooding on I-95 and hail.
  7. Downtown photos from this morning: http://puhak.net/rcw/RVA-2014/index.html
  8. New Mater Plans have been posted. Interactive: http://rockettsvillage.com/map PDF: http://henrico.com/files/Rocketts_Landing_Master_Plan.pdf
  9. It looks like they've finished up the fourth floor of parking and are starting on the 5th and final parking deck floor. Then it's onto the office tower portion. It looks like they've installed some (test?) pieces of glass on the river side of the building: http://oxblue.com/open/clayco/gatewayplaza
  10. I took a run downtown this afternoon (should have brought a camera)... The walls of the old Reynolds metals building on the Canal Walk are almost all down. The Marriots on Cary St. in Shockoe Slip are starting on the second floor. The new apartments on Tobacco Row look nice. They're doing interior work now. The empty space next to MeadWestVaco would be a great spot for a signature tower.
  11. The architecture is uninspired. They didn't restore the street grid (5th & 6th Streets). Hull St. side looks more like suburban Broad St. than downtown Broad St. It's all pedestrian unfriendly and car oriented. If they're targeting people working downtown, why not do something to improve or promote the transit options - it's on the 63, 63, 67 and 74 bus routes that all go right downtown. And the only connection to the river is a tiny future connection to the Floodwall.
