I-64 RESURFACING PROJECT COMPLETE
Project finishes one month ahead of schedule and within budget
COLONIAL HEIGHTS – The 140,000 daily drivers traveling along the I-64 corridor west of Richmond are enjoying a less bumpy ride thanks to the completion of the I-64 resurfacing project. Contractor, Branscome Inc. of Williamsburg wrapped up the $35 million repair and repaving project between the I-95/I-195 Bryan Park interchange and Parham Road last week—one month ahead of the scheduled November 2010 completion and within the projected budget.
“The VDOT project team and the contractor worked very hard, often around the clock, to complete this project despite the tough winter and extreme summer heat,” said Justin Sayko, VDOT project manager. “We’re pleased with the quality of this project and have already heard from some satisfied drivers.”
The concrete repairs and new pavement should expand the life expectancy of the I-64 corridor west of Richmond for at least 50 years with scheduled maintenance. The resurfacing project began in October 2009 and included concrete pavement repairs and asphalt overlay to 5.6 miles of I-64 east and westbound. More than 35 ramps and merge lanes were also resurfaced as part of this project.
