Broomfield, Colorado (February 15, 2019) – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced today that it has selected Hampton Roads Connector Partners (HRCP) for the construction of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) Expansion Project valued at $3.3 billion. The HRCP joint venture team includes Flatiron Construction Corp., Dragados USA, and VINCI Construction.
As referenced in the Governor’s announcement, the project will add two new 1.5 miles long two-lane twin tunnels and 2 miles long new marine approach bridges across the Hampton Harbor.
