ALL EASTBOUND LANES TO OPEN THROUGHOUT I-64 WIDENING SEGMENT III PROJECT
All three newly completed travel lanes on I-64 east between exits 234 and 242 to open as early as Nov. 19

YORK COUNTY— Starting as early as the afternoon on Nov. 19, motorists on I-64 east will begin to experience safer, improved travels just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday with the opening of all three newly completed eastbound travel lanes between Route 199/Newman Road (exit 234) and Route 199/Humelsine Parkway (exit 242).

This significant milestone of the I-64 Widening Segment III Project adds an additional 6 miles of interstate widening and improvements to the 2 miles previously opened eastbound last June, as well as connects to the nearly 13 miles previously widened through the first and second I-64 Widening Project Segments completed in 2017 and 2019.

Crews are working diligently towards the full opening of the remaining 8 miles of travel lanes westbound—including the remaining portion of the new westbound Queens Creek bridge—scheduled to open as early as mid-week next week.

Following the openings of the third travel lanes in each direction, lane closures may continue to take place as needed to finish final construction and maintenance items over the next few weeks.
