The Manor Drive Extension was a LPA Project done in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Transportation. The project created an extension of Manor Drive from Catalpa Drive to Dillon Drive on the City's north side. The road was built for the safety of the citizens that live, work, and visit the area. Before its construction it was difficult for drivers to enter traffic on Chester Boulevard (US 27) due to limited access to intersections controlled by a traffic light. With its completion, drivers can now easily access the light controlled intersection at Locust Drive to safely access Chester Boulevard.
The following two projects are still in progress with a planned completion of this year:
The complete rebuild of US 27 South (8th Street) and US 40 East (South "A" Street) will continue again this year, with an estimated completion of late fall 2018.
The Community Crossings Grant Program is 50/50 Matching Grant Program where 50% of the funding is provided by State of Indiana and the other 50% of the funding is matched by the City of Richmond. In 2017 the City of Richmond was awarded $1,089,758.00 dollars toward the following list of projects:
The Stellar Streets Project will begin this spring. The project redesigns East Main Street, North 7th Street, and South/North 10th Street to include Richmond's first dedicated bike/pedestrian paths. These paths will interconnect the Gorge Park, Downtown Richmond, and the Historic Depot District.
