About the Project
The I-64 Widening Project, a 12-mile corridor divided into two
independent operable segments, will widen Interstate 64 from Newport News to Williamsburg to three lanes in each direction by adding one additional lane and 12-foot shoulder in each direction. The project will begin near Jefferson Avenue (Exit 255) and extend to Humelsine Parkway (Exit 242). There will be no interchange upgrades. Construction is expected to begin summer 2017.
On June 20, 2013, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) approved a resolution that endorses the project and recommends adding an additional lane in each direction between Jefferson Avenue (Exit 255) and Humelsine Parkway (Exit 242).
Surveys to collect data along the I-64 corridor from Jefferson Avenue (Route 143) to Humelsine Parkway (Route 199) began in July 2013 and are expected to continue through September. The survey and data collection work will refine estimates and assess scope and budget potential for the upcoming project. Three separate tasks assignments have been issued to provide information necessary for potential widening, including underground utility designation, and geotechnical and soil surveys. The work is being performed to further the study of the I-64 widening project only.
