Major road widening project employs free-standing J-J Hooks barrier
The Virginia Department of Transportation and contractor Vecellio & Grogan undertook a 2 year, 37.2 million dollar project to widen Interstate 64 from four lanes to six lanes eastbound from Route 623 to Route 271 (Pouncey Tract Road) and westbound from Route 271 (Pouncey Tract Road) to Route 622. The additional through lanes will be constructed to the inside of existing I-64 in both directions. The 4.52 mile project is located in both Henrico and Goochland counties. The several miles of free-standing NCHRP-350 J-J Hooks safety barrier owned by the contractor, was manufactured by Smith-Midland.
