Stop the City of Richmond Plan to Close Historic Brook Road at Broad Street
Brook Road is Richmond’s earliest toll road and the first Avenue in Virginia. Without consulting affected property owners and residents, the city developed a plan to close the first block of Brook, where it intersects with Broad Street, to accommodate a statue to a notable Richmonder that can easily fit on the existing plaza.
The street closure will negatively impact nearby residents, businesses and property values by eliminating street frontage and parking. Hazardous traffic and pedestrian conditions will result from large vehicles forced to maneuver onto an already congested Adams Street.
The closure of Brook Road at Broad Street will erase a part of Richmond history and destroy a unique triangular plaza with its magnificent live oak tree.
