The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will deliver Richmond region portion of Interstate 64 widening as a design-build project by Corman-Branch, a joint venture.
This is a more streamlined process that helps to expedite construction.
The design-build team constructs the project while design is still underway, which greatly reduces the overall time necessary to complete the project.
The project is estimated to be completed by late summer 2019.
Work will occur 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.
