This project will extend the life expectancy of the Northbound I-664 Monitor Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel approach structures for an additional 15 to 20 years past its normal life span.
The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $5.4 million contract to The Truesdell Corporation of Tempe, Arizona in May 2016 for repairs and waterproofing activities. Expected final completion of the project will be in July 2019.
Drivers can expect weeknight single lane closures at the MMMBT during construction activities. VDOT attempts to schedule work outside of peak rush hour periods to limit impacts to motorists.
The waterproofing of the southbound spans of the MMMBT was completed in 2014.
