The Hampton Roads Express Lanes (HREL) will provide a safe and more reliable travel option for motorists across the region and relieve congestion at key locations along the region's interstate network. The network consists of continuous 45-miles of Express Lanes in each traffic direction on I-64 from east of Denbigh Boulevard in Newport News to the I-64/I-264/I-664 Bowers Hill interchange in Chesapeake.
The HREL network is divided into four segments and will be delivered in two phases. All work is dependent on weather conditions and the schedule is subject to change. You can read more about each project at the Under Construction and In Design tabs at the top of this page.
The HREL and other major transportation improvements ongoing across the Hampton Roads region are the direct result of unified regional leadership and the strong working partnership between the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) our Federal Planning partner, The Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission (HRTAC), our source of regional funding, and the Virginia Department of Transportation, who develops, delivers, operates and maintains the region's interstate system.
