NEWPORT NEWS - Drivers face plenty of bottlenecks on Interstate 64 between Hampton and Richmond.

On Wednesday, you can tell state and federal highway planners what could help the drive along the 75-mile corridor.

A public meeting will be held Wednesday, April 25, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the City Center Conference Room, Fountain Plaza II, 700 Town Center Drive in Newport News.

It's an early step in the process that will examine problems like road capacity, mobility and access.

Planners want to know why you use the I-64 corridor, when you run into backups and what they should look to improve first.

Right now, planners are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the project.

Some improvements have already been made - widening stretches of I-64 to six and eight lanes and raising the speed limit.

The public meeting will be held Wednesday, April 25, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the City Center Conference Room, Fountain Plaza II, 700 Town Center Drive in Newport News.

You can download a comment form to take with you or send to the I-64 Peninsula Study Team, c/o McCormick Taylor, Inc., North Shore Commons A, 4951 Lake Brook Drive, Suite 275, Glen Allen, VA 23060.
