RICHMOND, Va. – The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) awarded nine contracts on Wednesday worth approximately $96.5 million for major infrastructure improvements.
Many hours have been lost and likely many headaches have been caused for those who regularly drive on Interstate 66 in Northern Virginia. Arguably one of the busiest roads in the country, I-66 is finally about to undergo a major transformation. “Transform I-66: Inside and Outside the Beltway” will be an extensive, multifaceted project with goals of reducing delay times and congestion while increasing travel options, travel speeds and the amount of people moving through the I-66 Corridor.
Anyone who has driven from Richmond to Virginia Beach or vice versa knows that traffic on Interstate 64 can be brutal. Drivers suffer, particularly in the summer months, losing time to jam-packed lanes in one of the busiest regions of Virginia. Thankfully, relief is on the way.
