Transportation Board Awards Contracts

July 20, 2004

The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) recently announced the following construction contracts:

I-66 widening, Prince William County – Moore Bros. Co., Inc. of Verona received a $37 million contract to widen 3.6 miles of I-66 from four to eight lanes from the Route 234 Bypass to the Route 234 Business. The existing median will be preserved for future barrier-separated reversible high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes or transit. No residences, businesses or nonprofit organizations will be displaced. Construction will be sequenced to maintain traffic as efficiently as possible.

The project’s deadline for completion is October, 2006.

I-66 is a major east-west interstate route that connects Northern Virginia and the metropolitan Washington area to I-81 and areas to the west.

I-81 bridge replacement, Rockbridge County – Fairfield Skanska, Inc. of Fishersville received a contract award of $27 million to replace the I-81 northbound and southbound bridges over Buffalo Creek. The project also includes building a northbound slow-vehicle climbing lane in the project area. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions during construction. Any lane closures required will be allowed only at night. Once completed, the project will provide for much safer traffic flow through this section of I-81.

The project’s deadline for completion is July of 2007.

I-64 bridge improvement, Henrico County – Archer Western Contractors, LTD of Sandston received a $23 million contract award to improve the deteriorated I-64 bridge over Acca Yard. The project includes replacing the bridge’s driving surface with a wider structure and lengthening the ramps to reduce congestion.

The project’s deadline for completion is October of 2007.

Route 600 bridge repair, Dinwiddie County – Fort Chiswell Construction Corporation of Bluefield received a $2 million contract award to replace the bridge decks and make extensive repairs to the structures over the Appomattox River and the canal. The project is located next to the Appomattox Riverside Park. The bridges were built in 1958.

Deadline for completion is May of 2006
