Public Information Meeting fact sheet
The primary purpose of this project is to beautify the landscape along the I-95 corridor between Hermitage Road and Franklin Street. This project also includes landscaping at the Nine Mile Road/I-64 interchange on the eastern border of Richmond at the Henrico County line.
The landscaping will include improvements at approaches, entrances and exits along I-95 leading to the local streets. In addition, gateway or welcome signs may be included at sites to be determined.
Enhancements to the Broad Street interchange began in December 2011 and were completed in summer of 2012. Landscaping work at the I-64/Nine Mile Road interchange and the I-95/I-64 interchange at 5th Street are expected to begin in fall 2013.
A citizen information was held in March 2012 for the Nine Mile Road interchange enhancement. Fact sheet
During construction, minimal traffic impacts are expected. Work will be performed within the existing right of way. No work will take place in the travel lanes.
