Improving Mobility on the Peninsula
The Virginia Department of Transportation will deliver the first segment as a design-build project by Shirley Contracting Co. LLC.
This is a more streamlined process that helps to expedite construction.
The design-build team constructs the project while design is still underway, which greatly reduces the overall time necessary to complete the project.
The project is estimated to be completed by winter 2017.
Work will occur in the median of the existing interstate. This limits the amount of right of way required to construct the project and avoids impacts to existing interchanges.
In addition to roadway improvements, existing bridges will be widened to the inside.
The second section of I-64 improvements stretches to Route 199 in Williamsburg. The contract for this segment of the project was awarded on Jan. 20, 2016, to Allan Myers, VA Inc.
