Changes planned for Hull Street.
The Hull Street Corridor Revitalization Plan provides a comprehensive, implementation-oriented strategy for creating sound, economically sustainable quality of life enhancements along a 4.7 mile stretch of the Hull Street Road corridor extending through both the City of Richmond and Chesterfield County, Virginia. These improvements include strong and safe multi-modal connections, transportation infrastructure upgrades, visual and physical enhancements, improved housing options, expanded job opportunities and critical recreational and environmental investments — all needed to transform the Hull Street corridor from simply a highway through communities to a vital, vibrant place where people from both the area and the region want to live, shop, work and be entertained.
That’s from the executive summary (pdf) but one thing is could mean in the short term is better and safer looking streets as seen above. The $36 million plan would be between Chippenham Parkway and Southside Plaza and is still in its early stages.
The city’s Urban Design Committee is scheduled to take a first look at it today at their regularly scheduled meeting.
