Purpose and Need

The Interstate 64 Widening Project in Henrico and New Kent counties will improve safety and traffic flow while increasing vehicle capacity along one of the busiest highways in Virginia.

The project will extend between the Interstate 295 interchange (located at mile marker 200) and the Bottoms Bridge/Quinton interchange (located at mile marker 205).

VDOT is advertising this project as design-build to help streamline the overall design and construction process. The project was advertised on March 17, 2017.

Work will occur in the median of the existing interstate lanes, which will limit right of way and interchange impacts. 

In addition to roadway improvements, the existing bridge over the Chickahominy River will be widened to the inside.
