USA Cycling event to close many city streets, restrict travel

road closures

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) –Make sure you know which Richmond roads will be closed, as there are multiple events this weekend that will coincide with a huge bike race happening downtown throughout the entire weekend.

The USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships start Friday, May 2, run through May 4, and will greatly affect travel in the city. Roads will be closed, bridges will be closed and some one-way streets will temporarily be two-way.

These races are a test event for the region’s hosting of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, and will draw more than 400 cyclists to the city — in addition to spectators.

Citizens are asked to avoid the areas of the race if possible and to plan ahead with alternate routes and extra time to get to where they need to go.

Multiple maps of the races and affected areas are currently being posted to the city website and the Richmond Police Department Facebook page.

Street closures will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 1, around East Broad Street in the area of 5th Street, specifically the closing of East Broad Street between 3rd and 7th streets; 5th Street between East Marshall and East Grace streets; and  3rd Street between East Clay and East Broad streets.
