VDOT's I-64 Southside Widening and High Rise Bridge, Phase 1 Project will widen nearly 9 miles of I-64 to three full-time travel lanes in each direction, including one Express lane between Bowers Hill and Battlefield Boulevard, and construct a new 100-foot vertical clearance fixed-span bridge over the Elizabeth River serving motorist traveling to Virginia Beach.

Other improvements include replacing the Great Bridge Boulevard overpass, installing sound walls, resurfacing the existing roadway and stormwater management facilities.

In the Elizabeth River, work will include changes in channel layout, and removal and replacement of the existing fender system. Additional substructure changes include pile driving, pile cap construction, column construction, and cap construction. Superstructure work includes beam erection.
