Newport News Segment (4A/4B)

The HREL Newport News Segment will span approximately 13.5 miles on I-64 from east of LaSalle Avenue (exit 265) in Hampton to west of Denbigh Boulevard in Newport News. For 10.2 miles of the corridor from Bland Boulevard to the I-664 interchange (exit 264), the existing high occupancy vehicles (HOV) lane in each direction will be converted into an Express Lane, alongside the three free general purpose lanes. For the remaining 1.3 miles of the segment between the I-664 interchange and Armistead Avenue, one general purpose lane will be converted into an Express Lane in each direction, alongside the two free general purpose lanes.
