I-64/Northampton Boulevard Interchange
Project at a Glance
Est Completion Date
$9.3 million (SMART Scale)
VDOT Public Affairs
This interchange is one of the highest volume interchanges in the region. The project will modify the off-ramp interfaces to Northampton Boulevard from I-64 and lengthen the acceleration lane from Northampton Boulevard to I-64 West.
The work includes widening the I-64 West exit ramp approach to Northampton Boulevard from two lanes to five lanes (two left turns, two right turns and the existing continuous flow lane will be maintained but tightened for a more integrated movement onto Northampton Boulevard). The traffic signal at Northampton will also be modified.
The I-64-East ramp to Northampton Boulevard will be realigned to a signalized “T” and the ramp merge onto Northampton will be removed.
The project will increase the off-ramp capacity and eliminating difficult arterial weaving movements on Northampton Boulevard will greatly improve operations and safety at this location.
