RESIDENTS ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND INFORMATION MEETING ON I-64 REPAVING AND I-95 BRIDGE REHABILITATION PROJECTS
The public information meeting will be held Monday, Dec. 15 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Library of Virginia located at 800 East Broad Street in downtown Richmond. Free parking is available under the building. The meeting will be open format with stations where residents can talk one-on-one with VDOT representatives. This flexible format allows participants to arrive whenever their schedule will allow.
The approximately $40 million I-64 repaving project will involve repair and resurfacing of more than five miles of pavement along I-64 east and west between the I-95 Bryan Park interchange and Parham Road (Exit 181). Drivers can expect overnight and some daytime lane closures during non-peak hours. On occasion, short term ramp detours may be needed. Pending available funding, VDOT plans to advertise this project to potential contractors in summer 2009 with concrete repairs to begin in fall 2009 and completion expected in fall 2011.
The other maintenance project involves the replacement of 11 bridges along the I-95 corridor in Richmond between Lombardy Street and Upham Brook. Construction activities will take place primarily overnight and may involve multiple lane and ramp closures, particularly when prefabricated sections of the bridge are transported along I-95 and installed. Pending available funding, construction of the approximately $120 million project is anticipated to begin in summer 2011.
