HRTPO Board Approves 8.5 Billion Dollar Amendment to the 2034 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

HRTPO Board Approves 8.5 Billion Dollar Amendment to the 2034 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

By Mike Kimbrel, Principal Transportation Engineer

On September 18, 2014, the HRTPO Board approved an amendment to the Hampton Roads 2034 LRTP to add the following eight projects to be funded, in whole or in part, with Hampton Roads Transportation Fund (HRTF) revenues:

  • I-64 Peninsula Segment 2: from 0.50 mile east of Route 238 (near Exit 247) to Route 199 (Exit 242)
  • I-64 Segment 3: from Route 199 (Exit 242) to Route 199 (Exit 234)
  • I-64 Interchange at Fort Eustis Boulevard
  • Third Crossing – Patriots Crossing with Craney Island Connector
  • Third Crossing – I-664 Widening from Bowers Hill to I-64 on the Peninsula, including Bowers Hill Interchange
  • I-64 Southside Widening: from I-464 to Bowers Hill, including High Rise Bridge
  • I-64/I-264 Interchange (near Norfolk/Virginia Beach line)
  • US Route 460/58/13 Connector: from Bowers Hill to Route 58 Bypass, including SPSA and Airport Interchanges

The total estimated cost for the above listed projects is approximately $8.56 billion.  Over a 20-year period, the cumulative estimated total of HRTF revenues is approximately $8 billion.  For purposes of financial constraint, it is assumed that the difference will be funded with a combination of:

  • Federal funds
  • A portion of the statewide HB2313 revenues expected to be allocated to Hampton Roads
  • Other state funds
  • Other sources, which could include tolls.

Approval of this amendment request included the following stipulations regarding the projects listed above:

  • Include the word “Multimodal” in the description of the Third Crossing project (Patriots Crossing and I-664 Widening)
  • Update the regional model including the projects
  • Conduct additional public involvement on the projects
  • Clarify which of the projects will include tolls
  • Update cost estimates for the projects
  • Provide additional clarification of year-of-expenditure assumptions
  • Provide information on the impact to the region of the non-compete clause related to the Elizabeth River Crossings project
  • Provide an interim update to the 2034 LRTP within the next six months
