This $3.8 Billion transportation megaproject includes building twin two-lane bored tunnels west of the existing eastbound tunnel and widening landside four-lane sections in Hampton and Norfolk. Between now and the estimated completion date of November 2025, F&R will be providing Construction Materials Testing on the embankment fill, aggregate base, concrete, asphalt, and steel; as well as performing QC Inspections for bridge, roadway, and building construction.
The new twin tunnels will be approximately 50 ft. deeper than the current Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnels and will be constructed using a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). The diameter of each new tunnel will be approximately 45 feet, creating the second largest tunnel opening for a TBM in North America.
F&R is excited to be serving alongside these firms that comprise the Design Build Team, the Hampton Roads Connector Partners (HRCP): a joint venture consisting of Dragados USA, Flatiron Constructors, Vinci Construction and Dodin Campenon Bernard. HDR and Mott MacDonald are the lead designers.
