Cost and schedule ►
Public outreach ►
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.
Additionally, the existing full cloverleaf interchange has been converted to a partial cloverleaf (see images below - Ramps B and D are now permanently closed).
During construction, two through lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction of I-64.
The project will improve safety and efficiency near the Richmond International Airport.
The project was substantially completed in Winter 2021. All work impacting traffic has ben completed. Read more here.
The project is currently in the Landscape Establishment period, which is set to be complete in Fall 2022.
