About the Project

This project will provide strategic connectivity between U.S. Route 60 and State Route 143 in the vicinity of the Walmart Distribution Center in James City County to redirect industrial traffic away from James River Elementary School, remove traffic from the Lee Hall community in the city of Newport News, and provide long-range, additional access to Fort Eustis. 

These improvements are also critical to the regional transportation system to provide improved access to Virginia's ports and enhanced accessibility to existing corporations. 

This project is included in the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization's FY2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program, and was added to the 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan as a stand-alone project for preliminary engineering and right-of-way.

Location study is underway.
