More than 50 members of the Segment III project team made up of representatives from VDOT, design-builder Shirley Contracting Company and their subcontractor teams participated in a Segment III Kick-Off meeting held on February 6, at the VDOT Hampton Roads District Office.
VDOT issued a Notice to Proceed to the Segment III design-build contractor, Shirley Contracting on January 3, 2018, and geotechnical work is currently underway. Shoulder strengthening work will begin this summer. Construction of the entire project is estimated to be complete by June 2021.
The design-build contractor will be performing the final noise study later this year, following Federal Regulations and State Noise Policy. The study must then be reviewed and approved by VDOT and the Federal Highway Administration before it is finalized.
Three public information meetings will be held to present traffic impacts, the proposed limits of clearing, the proposed landscaping plan, the stormwater management design and improvements, and the Final Noise Analysis results as design progresses.
Look for future I-64 Widening Project email updates announcing when these meetings will take place.
