VDOT TO HOST CITIZEN INFORMATION MEETINGS FOR INTERSTATE 64 PENINSULA STUDY
Meetings Scheduled in Newport News and New Kent on March 23 and 24, Respectively

RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host citizen information meetings regarding the agency’s study of the I-64 corridor from I-95 in Richmond to I-664 in Hampton (approximately 75 miles).  

The purpose of the study is to identify transportation needs within the I-64 corridor and to evaluate the impact of proposed improvements to meet those needs. An Environmental Impact Statement is being prepared as part of this study in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  The study is scheduled for completion in early 2014.

As part of the NEPA process, two citizen information meetings are scheduled. The purpose of these meetings is to give citizens an opportunity to provide input into the scope of issues to be addressed in the study.

The first meeting will be held on March 23, 2011, from 5 to 8 p.m. at City Center Conference Room, Fountain Plaza II, 700 Town Center Drive, Newport News, Va., 23606. The second meeting will be held on March 24, 2011, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the New Kent Welcome Center Facility, 7324 Vineyards Parkway, New Kent, Va., 23124.
