Air Terminal Interchange Project
Project at a Glance
About the Project:
Previous Department of Defense legislation requires that VDOT construct the Air Terminal Interchange as consideration for providing the requisite easement for the (I-564) Intermodal Connector. This interchange will serve Chambers Field Air Station. Crews will construct a new interchange that will connect the air station to the current I-564. Once this interchange is built, VDOT will acquire the easement that is needed to build the Intermodal Connector.
Navy Triangle Area Improvements
The Navy Triangle is a five phase strategy. The purpose of this strategy is to develop a beneficial transportation system around the Norfolk Naval Base and Norfolk International Terminals that will:
- Provide the military with improved methods of mobilizing people and goods
- Help alleviate existing congestion and improve the level of service on city and naval station streets
- Eliminate the at-grade railroad crossings
- Connect the ports directly to a freeway system
The Navy and VDOT conducted a design charette in September 2012, to determine a new preferred location for analysis in the Interchange Justification Report. The proposed location subsequently went through a fatal flaw analysis and was adopted by the Stakeholder champions. The next step will be to bring the interchange to the TPO for incorporation into the Constrained Long Range Plan. A consultant has been retained to conduct the IJR, with the scope and fee currently being negotiated. Design, procurement and construction needs to be funded and approved.
