RICHMOND - The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has accepted an unsolicited conceptual proposal from a private firm to develop and operate the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel and Interstate 64 from Interstate 664 to Interstate 564 in Hampton, Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
The proposal was submitted Sept. 29, 2010, by Hampton Roads Crossing, a group of international infrastructure developers and construction companies that include:
