Public invited to attend in-person to learn about upcoming Express Lanes construction

NORFOLK – Design-build contractor Allan Myers for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) Interstate 64 (I-64) Express Lanes Norfolk Segment will hold a citizen information meeting Tuesday, Aug. 22, to share information on construction soon to be underway on I-64 in Norfolk.

The primary purpose of this $163 million project is to convert the existing shoulder lane to a high-occupancy, part-time shoulder Express Lane that will run alongside the three existing general purpose lanes in both directions on I-64 from Tidewater Drive to Patrol Road. Additionally, five existing bridges will be rehabilitated and widened on I-64 east at I-564, Granby Street, Little Creek Road, as well as the east-and westbound bridges at Tidewater Drive. Three existing bridges on I-64 west will also be rehabilitated at Little Creek Road, Granby Street, and the I-64 Reversible Roadway over I-564 and Granby Street. 

Hampton Roads Express Lanes Norfolk Segment

Citizen Information Meeting

Tuesday, Aug. 22, 5-7 p.m.

Granby High School

7101 Granby St.

Norfolk, VA 23505 

The purpose of the meeting is to give citizens an opportunity to review project exhibits on display and meet with representatives from the design-build team and VDOT to learn about construction updates and projected traffic impacts. The citizen information meeting will be an open-house format meeting with no formal presentation. Media are invited to attend.

This project is part of the future Hampton Roads Express Lanes (HREL) network, a continuous, 46-mile network of Express Lanes on I-64 from east of Denbigh Boulevard in the city of Newport News to the I-64/I-264/I-664 Bowers Hill interchange in the city of Chesapeake. The network, being constructed in multiple segments over the next several years, is designed to transport motorists safely and efficiently through the region while helping to alleviate congestion at key locations along I-64.

In case of severe weather, the meeting back-up date is Aug. 23 from 5-7 p.m. at the same location.
