Capital Project Dashboard

RVA CIP Dashboard

The City of Richmond Capital Project Dashboard is an interactive data and map tool that allows you to explore active capital improvement projects throughout the community. The dashboard serves as a centralized location for capital project information from all city departments and is updated on a quarterly basis.  Projects displayed here have received some amount of funding and are in various phases of planning & design or construction, or have been completed as of the most recent update to the dashboard. 

The dashboard was designed to make capital project information more easily accessible to the community. This tool will help residents stay connected with capital project progress and learn more about projects near their homes, along their commutes and close to their workplaces.

To access the dashboard, please click the link below:
