Construction begins for Brad Moody memorial underpass
RICHMOND, CA (KGO) -- Construction officially got underway in Richmond to build a road underpass where a police officer was killed five years ago.
Officer Brad Moody died in 2008 when his patrol car crashed while he was responding to an emergency call.
On Friday, Richmond officials gathered to break ground on the Bradley Moody memorial underpass.
The officer's family was at the dedication.
The project will allow traffic to speed along Marina Bay Parkway, which can get congested by a railroad crossing.
Officer Moody's brother is also a Richmond officer. He says the bypass will save lives.
"We have a lot of police officers that have to take this roadway in order to have to get to calls for service and this is going to eliminate that issue of being held up and not being able to do our job," Officer James Moody said.
The underpass project is expected to cost around $40 million.
