The City of Richmond has set a date for a public meeting to discuss the future of an arguably dangerous intersection in the city’s Northside. Ever since removing the A.P. Hill statue in 2023, the intersection of W. Laburnum Avenue and Hermitage Road has lacked an actual traffic circle but lacks proper lane markers or turn lanes, causing confusion for drivers.

While the City says traffic incidents are down by a whopping 89% since the removal of the statue and traffic circle, a recent survey collecting resident feedback has shown that more needs to be done.

The survey, which is open through January 31st, hopes to collect citizen feedback on ways to improve safety, accessibility, and speed management for all users – drivers, pedestrians, bikers, and more.

A public meeting will also be held at Linwood Holton Elementary School from 5:00 to 7:00 PM on Thursday, January 18th. The public is invited to collaborate with city officials and traffic experts on their concerns and a path forward.

You can find the link to the survey here.
