These quotes were excerpted from the August/September 1991 special interstate edition of the Bulletin.
“Anytime you build a complex interchange in a downtown metropolitan area with an underwater tunnel and a bridge with a liftspan for river traffic, you have a real challenge. Nowhere else in Virginia can you come out of a tunnel and cross a drawbridge. In fact, only a very few interstates in the nation have a drawbridge. Interstate 264 has been a tremendous boon to commuters.”
Former Chief Engineer, discussing the complexity of building I-264 in Hampton Roads.
