Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Procurement Begins

Virginia DOT will hold an industry briefing on April 3 in Hampton, VA, to solicit ideas on the best way to procure a $3.3-billion widening of the two-lane Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT). VDOT expects to request a Record of Decision this summer. The existing 3.5-mile facility on I-64 consists of two 2-lane immersed-tube tunnels on artificial islands, with trestle bridges to shore. Traffic peaks on the four-lane crossing at 100,000 vehicles per day. The preferred and least costly alternative would widen I-64 from four lanes to a consistent six-lane facility along existing rights of way.
