Work to widen I-64 between I-295 (Exit 200) and Bottoms Bridge (Exit 205) is underway. The contractor, Corman-Branch, a joint venture, is using a design build process, which speeds construction by allowing the design-build team to construct while the design is still underway.
The project is estimated to be completed by fall 2019.
Work is occuring in the median of the existing interstate. This limits the amount of right of way required to construct the project and avoids impacts to existing interchanges.
In addition to roadway improvements, existing bridges will be widened to the inside.
As part of the project, soundwalls are being installed in certain areas along the interstate.
