RICHMOND, Va. – Three teams have been invited to submit proposals and prices for the design and construction of the I-64 Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel expansion project.

The HRBT expansion project consists of a new four-lane bridge-tunnel and a widening of the existing four-lane segments of I-64 between Settlers Landing and I-564 to ease congestion between Hampton and Norfolk. The project completion is targeted for 2024.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says all three teams are from the private sector.

“These three candidate teams are strong contenders for the next steps in the competitive process,” said Stephen C. Brich, VDOT Commissioner. “We are looking forward to learning more about each team’s specific plans and capabilities to deliver this vital project.”
