The 5th Street Bridge that crosses over Leigh Street as you approach the Greater Richmond Convention Center will be closed for replacement beginning on May 13, 2015.
The bridge will be closed through mid-August, re-opened for the UCI World Road Cycling Championships on September 19-27, 2015, and then closed again for final replacement.
Traffic coming off I-95 into the city on 5th Street will be diverted at Jackson Street, to 3rd Street, to Marshall Street and back onto 5th Street.
As a result, there may be times when traffic is heavier than usual around the Greater Richmond Convention Center, particularly during the morning rush hour during the work week of Monday through Friday.
Access to the parking deck at 5th and Marshall Streets will only be available through the entry on Marshall Street. Vehicles will still be able to exit the deck on 5th Street.
