In Design: Oyster Point Ramp Access Improvements

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project is located in the City of Newport News and it will widen the I-64 eastbound on-ramps at J. Clyde Morris Boulevard (Route 17) and Oyster Point Road (Route 171) from single lane ramps to two lane ramps adding capacity. Each of the ramps will be widened to two lanes at the entry points and merged to a single lane before entering freeway.

Traffic will be maintained during construction and no full roadway closures are anticipated. No right-of-way acquisitions are anticipated and there is a potential for minor utility relocations within the existing right-of-way.


This proposed project attempts to:

  • Widen the entrance ramp vehicular capacity to I-64 east for on-ramps located at J. Clyde Morris Boulevard and Oyster Point Road. 
  • Safety enhancements on on-ramps

The design of this project is in compliance with the Stormwater Management Act, stormwater regulations and the annual stormwater management standards and specifications approved by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. The construction of this project will conform to the nationwide best management practices, VDOT specifications and special provisions, and the Virginia Department of Soil and Water conservation regulations.
