VA Bike 2015

Welcome to the UCI Road World Championships...... Thank You for Visiting the State Employee Zone!

Virginia state employees’ source for information about the 2015 Road World Championships

COMMUTING/PARKING

Each race runs through downtown Richmond. This means that state employees will have a front row seat to all the action. It also means that some roads must be closed and traffic rerouted on others, which could impact accessibility to some state office buildings and parking decks. You may need to change your commute route to downtown and/or access your parking area from a different direction or entrance.

STATE EMPLOYEE PARKING

 

Download 11x17 map here

The Department of General Services created this map to help state employees determine the best way to access their parking decks from Monday, Sept. 21, through Friday, Sept. 25. Keep in mind that the road closures identified in the map are in effect from one hour prior to the race start time until one hour after the race finishes. You can find more detail on the race schedule here

OFFICIAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN

 



Click here to view the transportation plan, released in August by Richmond 2015, the event organizer. This website includes a day-by-day guide of traffic closures, parking information, where to watch the race, and an interactive mapping tool to get you where you want to go during those nine days.

 

The race schedule is such that roads will be closed after the morning rush hour and should open before the evening rush hour. Still, you should expect some delays getting to and from your parking area.

State employees who plan to drive should be prepared to show their state employee identification badge to access parking areas.
