Improved Mobility on the Peninsula
The Virginia Department of Transportation delivered all three Segments of the I-64 Widening Project as a design-build project. This is a more streamlined process that helps to expedite construction.
The design-build team constructed the project while design was still underway, which greatly reduces the overall time necessary to complete the project.
The Segment I project was completed on-time by design-build contractor Shirley Contracting on December 1, 2017.
The Segment II project is located in Newport News, James City and York counties, widening Interstate 64 approximately 7.08 miles, from just west of Route 199 (Humelsine Parkway/Marquis Center Parkway/Exit 242) to where the Segment I project ended, east of Route 238 (Yorktown Road/Exit 247). The contract for this segment of the project was awarded on Jan. 20, 2016, to Allan Myers, VA Inc., with construction beginning in October 2016. All three travel lanes opened for travel in each direction in April 2019.
The Segment III project segment is in York County, spanning 8.2 miles from approximately 1 mile west of Route 199, Newman Road (Exit 234), to 1 mile west of Route 199 (Humelsine Parkway/Marquis Center Parkway/Exit 242). On December 6, 2017, a $178.3 million design-build contract was awarded by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) to Shirley Contracting Company to complete Segment III of the I-64 Capacity Improvements Project. A notice to proceed was issued to Shirley Contracting on January 3, 2018, and construction began in August 2018. This segment was completed on December 20, 2021.
