A public hearing was held on May 2, 2017. A meeting brochure is available
The primary purpose of this project is to replace the two structurally deficient I-64 eastbound and westbound bridges over Airport Drive (Rt. 156), increase vertical clearance on Airport Drive (Rt. 156) to 16'-6" and perform all necessary approach work to accommodate this vertical increase.
The existing full cloverleaf interchange will be converted to a partial cloverleaf (see image below - Ramps B and D will be removed).
During construction, two through lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction of I-64. Drivers can expect temporary lane closures as the project begins.
The project will improve safety and efficiency near the Richmond International Airport.
