I-64 and I-464 Interchange Exit 291 Ramp Improvements

This interstate ramp improvements project will improve the interchange connectivity of the ramps from Interstate 64 (I-64) east to Interstate 464 (I-464) (exit 291) while providing a direct connection from I-64 east to Route 168 (Chesapeake Expressway) south in the city of Chesapeake. The project covers a total of 1.62 miles.

The project will include the widening of I-64 to accommodate two lanes of travel at exit 291A, the construction of a new ramp to Route 168 south and the reconfiguring of the ramp to I-464 north.

The improvements on exit 291 to Route 168 will eliminate the need to cross multiple lanes of traffic to go from the loop ramp to the split. Additionally, the southbound I-464 overpass bridge will be rehabbed and modified to accommodate two 12-foot lanes, a 12-foot outside shoulder and a 4-foot inside shoulder.

This project is currently in design.
