What's Being Done

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have initiated a study of the Interstate 64 corridor from I-95 in Richmond to I-664 in Hampton. 

The purpose of this study is to identify transportation needs within the I-64 corridor and to evaluate the impacts of proposed improvements to meet those needs. 

The study area is approximately 75 miles long.

Project Updates

On February 21, 2014, VDOT requested a Record of Decision (ROD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for the first operationally independent section to be implemented from the Interstate 64 Peninsula Study Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). The proposed section extends from approximately Exit 247 to Exit 255 in the City of Newport News. To inform the public of this action, VDOT  made its request available for public review and comment from March 18–April 2, 2014. VDOT initially proposes to implement a partial build of the full-build improvement that is identified as the preferred alternative for this section in the EIS. The initial proposal includes one additional lane in each direction. The full-build improvement, which would eventually be implemented, would include two additional lanes in each direction associated with the preferred alternative for this section.

For more information on the implementation of the proposed section, please visit the project web site:

What is an open forum citizen information meeting? 
An open forum citizen information meeting (open house) encourages one-on-one discussions in an informal setting. This style of meeting has an easy, open and encouraging effect on citizens and can be very helpful in building a sense of consensus between the Department and citizens. At the meeting, people familiar with all facets and features of the project visually display their information. The purpose of the open forum may be to suggest solutions or may simply be to give information and facts. The process is highly interactive with technical people presenting and fielding questions from communities, individual citizens or small groups.
