I am pleased to report the HRBT project has not missed a beat when it comes to keeping our critical stakeholders informed of our progress during the pandemic.
For our first project Stakeholders Meeting last February, we sat together at The Regional Building in Chesapeake. However, the next quarterly meeting in early June looked a lot different as COVID-19 called for a virtual meeting. We were able to share a number of accomplishments from the first two quarters of the year.
This newsletter contains pictures of this progress, as well as snapshots of ongoing work on the HRBT South Island which is a hub of activity. VDOT, Hampton Roads Connector Partners (HRCP) and HRCP’s subcontractors have a variety of work underway leading up to excavation of the pit to receive the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).
In the coming weeks, HRCP also expects to receive word from our federal and state permitting partners, signaling approval for the start of full construction. Stay tuned.
