I-95 NORTH/HERMITAGE ROAD INTERCHANGE IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT TO BEGIN IN RICHMOND
Project will improve safety and reduce congestion

RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Transportation will begin work on Monday, July 29 to improve traffic flow at the I-95 north/Hermitage Rd. interchange (at Arthur Ashe Boulevard, Exit 78) in the City of Richmond.

The $2.7 million project will extend the northbound deceleration lane and widen the shoulder to enhance safety and alleviate congestion. Construction is expected to be complete by January 2020.

Temporary lane closures during the next few weeks might affect traffic in the area. However, nightly lane closures and detours may cause significant traffic delays.

The Hermitage Rd. interchange improvements project is one of multiple projects along the Interstate 95 corridor in the Richmond area that will substantially improve traffic flow in the region. This multi-year initiative includes improving signage, realigning lanes and installing roundabouts, as well as modernizing existing assets and information technology.
