Skanska-Kiewit, one of three joint venture teams short-listed for the $3.6 billion Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel project, has pulled itself from consideration, according to the project owner, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Skanska-Kiewit decided to pursue other options, project manager Jim Utterback told the Virginia-Pilot.
The HRBT expansion construction will build a new four-lane bridge-tunnel and widen the existing four-lane segments of I-64 between Settlers Landing and I-564, to ease congestion between Hampton and Norfolk. The contract award is anticipated in early 2019 with project completion targeted in 2024.
