Richmond's Via Verdi Repair Project begins May 1, El Portal Road and Transit Detours

The City of Richmond’s Via Verdi Repair Project is nearing commencement. Starting on May 1, 2012 and lasting up to eight months, El Portal Drive will be temporarily closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic between the Church of Christ parking lot and Barranca Street. Changeable Message Boards have been placed in the I-80 corridor to provide advance notice of the temporary road closure to drivers. Note: El Portal Drive / I-80 Ramps can still be accessed from El Portal west of the temporary closure.
