Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper

Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper (LQC) is the first phase of the Richmond Connects implementation process. Recognizing that permanent infrastructure and street design changes take a decent amount of time and money, LQC aims to meet the needs raised by Richmonders in a timely manner. The methods used may include things like street art, temporary road closures, and signage. LQC does not aim to replace permanent infrastructure changes in the long term, rather its goal it to improve safety and accessibility in the interim before permanent changes can be made. Details about each ongoing project can be found in the drop down below, as well as spaces to submit comments or questions.

The West Broad Street Green/Pollinator Park Street closure is the first Lighter Quicker Cheaper project happening under Richmond Connects. It will take place from Wednesday, May 8th, to Wednesday, June 5th, (extended from Wednesday, May 22nd) and will involve the closure of Cutshaw Ave from Wayne St to Sheppard St. The project is done in collaboration with the Greater Scotts Addition Association and intends to create a larger space for residents to recreate, as well as to improve pedestrian safety along Broad Street. Join us Saturday, May 11th for a celebration and demonstration of what this park could look like if it was expanded permanently.

The park is open from sunrise until 10 PM.
