Infrastructure Award for Joint Venture Project

Jun 29, 2020

We’re pleased to announce that the I-64 widening project in Henrico and New Kent counties (exits 200-205) recently received the HCCA Excellence in Infrastructure Award for projects valued at more than $15 million. This joint-venture project with Corman Kokosing Construction was completed in approximately two years, ahead of schedule and under budget.

The goals of this project were to increase visibility for VDOT traffic cameras and create additional traffic capacity throughout a corridor of I-64 that has experienced a large number of accidents in the past. Construction began in August 2017 and was completed in August 2019. Improvements included:

  • A 12-foot wide travel lane and a 10-foot wide shoulder in both directions.
  • Widened bridges over the Chickahominy River.
  • Improved acceleration and deceleration lanes at the northbound and southbound truck weigh stations.
  • Box culvert extensions.
  • An enclosed pedestrian tunnel between the eastbound and westbound truck weigh stations.
  • New sound mitigation walls.
  • Roadway safety lighting at the eastbound and westbound truck weigh stations.

The HCCA Excellence in Infrastructure Award recognizes companies and projects that meet the highest standard of excellence in construction as viewed by their peers in the industry. Projects are judged on their aesthetics, the difficulty of execution, technical excellence, and the overall quality of craftsmanship.

We are honored to receive this recognition and are grateful for everyone who played a role in the project’s success. I-64 widening project team:
