The City of Richmond has officially launched a feasibility study to reconnect Jackson Ward by capping the interstate and reestablishing the street network that was severed when the highway was built through the neighborhood. The Reconnect Jackson Ward Feasibility Study seeks to engage the community to develop options for new transportation connections and public spaces in this area.
