Project Overview

The Hampton Boulevard (Route 337) Grade Separation project is step two in the four step process of completing the Navy Triangle Improvements. 

During this construction project the existing at-grade conflict with the Norfolk Southern/Norfolk Portsmouth Beltline railroad and Hampton Boulevard (Route 337) was removed. The old crossing created significant delays for motorists and railway carriers on this heavily traveled thoroughfare. 

The railroad crossing conflict was eradicated by depressing Hampton Boulevard below the existing railroad tracks thus eliminating the need to interrupt vehicular traffic for railway movement in to and out of the port terminals.

 

Navy Triangle Improvements

  • Fleet Recreational Park was a replacement recreational facility for the Norfolk Naval Base that allowed VDOT to use the previous site for the widening of Hampton Boulevard and the construction of the I-564 Intermodal Connector.
  • Hampton Boulevard created a grade separation thus eliminating the need to interrupt vehicular traffic for railway movement in to and out of the port terminals.
  • The Intermodal Connector will realign I-564 to Hampton Boulevard with improved access into Naval Station Norfolk and Norfolk International Terminals.
  • Patriot's Crossing will create a connection from I-564 to I-664 which will travel under the Elizabeth River.
