Interested in the proposed plans of the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) Interstate 6 (I-64) widening project in New Kent County? The public hearing for the I-64 Widening Project will be held Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 5-7 p.m., at the New Kent County Visitors Center (7324 Vineyards Parkway, New Kent, VA 23124).
The project includes the addition of one travel lane on I-64 eastbound and westbound from mile markers 204.9 (just west of the Bottoms Bridge exit) to 215.6 (just east of the New Kent Courthouse/Providence Forge exit). This project will be the first of three segments that will widen I-64 from four to six lanes from mile marker 204.9 in New Kent County to mile marker 234 in York County. The widening would take place in the median of I-64 within existing right-of-way. Property impact information and tentative construction schedules will be available for your review at the public hearing.
