We are delighted you are attending the upcoming IDT Seminar on Friday, May 2, 2014. Please note the IMPORTANT traffic and parking information related to the USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals occurring on Friday, May 2, in downtown Richmond.

 

Street Closings and Delays

The Richmond Police Department has issued notices advising that many local streets will be closed in downtown Richmond around the Greater Richmond Convention Center (GRCC) on Friday. Street closures and towing will begin at 3:00 a.m. Friday and be in effect through 7:00 p.m. Please plan to arrive early for the seminar and expect delays on I-95 and I-64 getting into downtown Richmond.

 

Limited Access to Downtown Richmond

Due to the multitude of road closures into and out of Richmond, it is important that you enter the city from either I-64E or I-95 North or South.  See directions below.

 

Parking

Parking will be available at the GRCC and at a satellite lot located at James River Transportation, at Leigh and Allen Streets. Shuttle service from the James River Transportation lot will begin at 7 a.m.  Once the GRCC parking deck is full, several paid parking lots have limited availability at 5th and Marshall (deck), 7th Street (Coliseum parking deck), and 4th and Jackson Street (surface lot and deck).  For easiest access, you may wish to drive directly to the satellite parking.
