TRANSPORTATION BOARD APPROVES TWO CENTRAL VIRGINIA CONTRACTS VALUED AT $40 MILLION
COLONIAL HEIGHTS—The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) approved two contracts last week valued at approximately $40 million for central Virginia construction and maintenance.
Branscome Inc. of Williamsburg was awarded a contract valued at $35 million for Interstate 64 pavement rehabilitation in Henrico County. This project will involve concrete repair and asphalt overlay to approximately 5.5 miles of I-64 between the I-95/I-195 interchange and Parham Road. Paving will include the main through lanes, eastbound on and off ramps and 36 additional ramps. Due to the extensive number of travelers in this area (approximately 140,000 daily), temporary lane closures and traffic shifts will take place overnight and on weekends. Completion is anticipated by November 2010.
Lee Hy Paving Corporation of Glen Allen was awarded a $5 million contact to resurface approximately 2.5 miles of Interstate 295 south between the CSX railroad bridge overpass (mile marker 40) and the Pole Green Road/Meadowbridge Road interchange in Hanover County. Pavement rehabilitation will include an asphalt overlay to improve ride quality and safety for drivers. The project will involve temporary lane closures and traffic shifts during the construction. Approximately 40,000 to 48,000 vehicles travel on this section of I-295 each day. Completion is anticipated by August 2010.
