Join us for a summer ride to help celebrate Bike to Shop week and see some Richmond scenery on your bike!

Hi there,

We wanted to give you a heads up of some work happening that will include a road diversion on Inglis Drive near the South Terminal. Cyclists will be able to use the road, as there will be bike/pedestrian lanes on both sides, and vehicles will need to reduce speed to 30 km/h in that section. You can find more information about this project below:

Project Overview

We are removing and replacing Flood Box E (i.e., the drainage system) off Inglis Drive, which provides access to our South Terminal. This replacement will provide flood mitigation and increase climate resilience on Sea Island.

This project requires a temporary reconfiguration of Inglis Drive to ensure construction has complete access to the flood box and discharge pipes in the area.

Please be advised, the reconfigured roadway with a reduced speed limit of 30 km/h will open on the morning of August 8th, 2022 and will be in place until early 2023. We have a traffic management plan in place to ensure a smooth transition.

Proposed Schedule

Work on this project starts in the summer of 2022 and working hours are from 7 a.m.- 5 p.m. Completion of the project is scheduled for early 2023.

Construction Activities

To minimize the impact to operations, the contractor will be working within the construction site. Activities include:

  • Demolition and installation of a new flood box and outlet;
  • Constructing a new temporary roadway, and pedestrian/bike lanes on both sides of the road; and
  • Returning the roadway to the original state.


We thank you for your patience while we conduct this work.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
