The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), has initiated the environmental review process for the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate potential transportation improvements at the Bowers Hill interchange.  The Bowers Hill interchange includes a confluence of I-664, I-64, I-264, U.S. Route 460, U.S. Route 58, U.S. Route 13 and Jolliff Road (VA Route 191).

The project study will identify potential short-term and long-term operational improvements. The study boundary limits will be informed by scoping and refined through the course of the study.
