Which way to the neighborhood clean-up?

Union Hill Neighborhood Clean-Up
Saturday, March 5th, from 2-4pm

Whether you're driving or using alternative transportation, getting to our 2nd Union Hill Neighborhood clean-up is easy! We are cleaning up the 1800 block of O St., which is near major bus lines for GRTC and the VCU Campus Connector bus.

One of the best bike routes is along Leigh St., past the MCV Campus, and across the Martin Luther King bridge (aka Leigh St. Viaduct). This route is relatively low traffic with decent bike shoulders, and has very little elevation change.

Bus from the Fan/Carytown:

Take the Eastbound (Whitcomb/Fairfield) #3 or #4 bus, which starts at Carytown, and runs along Broad St. in the Fan and Downtown area. Get off at the Mosby & O St. stop for the #4, or the 23rd & Venable St. stop for the #3.

Bus from VCU, Monroe Park Campus:

Take the #84 Campus Connector, and get off at the MCV Bookstore stop. From there you can either walk (15 min.), or bike (2 min.) across the Martin Luther King bridge (aka Leigh St. Viaduct).

The easiest and quickest way to get to the clean-up from the Fan/Carytown areas is to take Leigh St., go past the MCV Campus, and across the Martin Luther King bridge (aka Leigh St. Viaduct). Leigh St. has less traffic and is usually quicker than Broad St. If you are taking Broad, take a left at 11th St., and a right onto Leigh St. to go across the Martin Luther Kind bridge. For coming from any other location, please click on the Google map above to find directions. After you arrive, you can park for free in the grassy lot across from the Temple of Judah church (N. 22nd St. at Venable).
