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.
An Environmental Impact Statement is being prepared for the project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
Through the NEPA process, the project team, using input from the public and from various state and federal agencies:
- Examines transportation problems such as road capacity, mobility and access
- Develops solutions to those problems
- Evaluates the impacts of the solutions
The Federal Highway Administration approved the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on Oct. 24, 2012. The DEIS is available for public and agency review and comment. All comments on the DEIS are due by Jan. 7, 2013.
Public hearings for the DEIS are currently being scheduled in accordance with the department's public involvement process.

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.
