VDOT begins search for company to expand HRBT

News

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) – VDOT announced they will begin searching for a private sector partner to build the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) Expansion project.

Following a briefing to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) on Dec. 6,  and concurrence from the Transportation Public-Private Partnership Steering Committee on Dec. 12, VDOT issued a Request for Qualifications for interested teams to share their capabilities and experience for the project.

The HRBT Expansion project will build another bridge-tunnel and widen the four-lane segments of I-64 in Hampton and Norfolk to ease daily congestion between the Peninsula and South Hampton Roads.

RFQ responses are due to VDOT by March 2, 2018, with qualified short-listed teams to be notified in April 2018. The list will be issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to obtain detailed information on their technical approach to deliver the project.

They hope to select a builder by the end of 2018, break ground in early 2019 and complete the project in 2024.
