Public invited to attend in-person to learn about upcoming Express Lanes construction

HAMPTON – Design-build contractor Shirley-Branch Joint Venture for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) Interstate 64 (I-64) Express Lanes Hampton Segment will hold a citizen information meeting Tuesday, April 11, to share information on upcoming construction on I-64 in the city of Hampton, where the three existing eastbound and westbound general purpose (GP) lanes will be converted into two Express Lanes and two GP lanes in both directions from 0.1 mile east of LaSalle Avenue to 0.4 mile east of Settlers Landing Road. This section of interstate includes six mainline bridges. The I-64 eastbound Hampton River bridges will be replaced and the I-64 westbound Hampton River bridge will be widened and rehabilitated. The King Street and Settlers Landing Road bridges will be widened and rehabilitated. The bridge over Rip Rap Road will be rehabilitated with no widening.

Citizen Information Meeting

Tuesday, April 11, 5-7 p.m.

Y.H. Thomas Community Center

1300 Thomas Street

Hampton, VA 23669

The purpose of the meeting is to give citizens an opportunity to review project exhibits on display, and meet with representatives from the design-build team and VDOT to learn about construction updates and projected traffic impacts. The citizen information meeting will be an open-house format meeting with no formal presentation. Media are invited to attend.

This project is part of the future Hampton Roads Express Lanes (HREL) Network, a continuous, 46-mile network of Express Lanes planned in each traffic direction on I-64 from east of Denbigh Boulevard in the city of Newport News to the I-64/I-264/I-664 Bowers Hill interchange in the city of Chesapeake. The Network, being constructed in multiple segments over the next several years, is designed to transport motorists safely and efficiently through the region while helping to alleviate congestion at key locations along I-64.
