Public Hearings Scheduled For I-64 Express Lane Project

HAMPTON—The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold two public hearings soon to discuss plans for widening Interstate 64 between LaSalle Avenue and Settlers Landing Road, replacing the eastbound bridge over the Hampton River, and widening the westbound bridge over the river. Other bridges within the project area would be widened and “rehabilitated” as part of an effort to improve access to the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel.

When finished, the project would include four lanes in each direction, including express lanes. Two public hearings will be offered: A virtual meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 22, from 5:30-7:30pm. Registration is required. An in-person meeting will be held Thursday, Sept. 23, from 4-7pm. at the Y.H. Thomas Community Center, 1300 Thomas Street in Hampton. VDOT representatives will share project information and answer questions. 

Interested parties can learn more about the two meetings, and the express lane project—including a tentative construction schedule—by going online to the project website at https://www.64expresslanes.org/under_design/hampton.asp. Individuals can also give written or verbal comments during the hearings, or submit them online using a survey at the project website.
