After more than two years, Segment II of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s I-64 Widening project is almost complete.
The project cost: $138.8 million, according to VDOT.
“Thanks to the opening of three travel lanes in each direction along I-64 Widening Segment II corridor, drivers have been able to enjoy safer, less congested travels between Newport News, James City County and York County,” according to VDOT’s news release. “These lanes add another 7 miles of interstate improvements to the 5.3 miles of the Segment I Project completed in December 2017.”
Segment II, which runs between Exit 242 and Exit 247 of I-64 started in October 2016 and affected west of Humelsine/Marquis Center Parkway and east of Yorktown Road.
The project used a cold application method and recycled asphalt as a green way to add two new lanes.
The final touches including inspections is estimated to be complete this summer.
