Join the HRBT expansion project

The Virginia Department of Transportation and Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission are sponsoring a special outreach meeting on Thursday, Oct. 25, for businesses who want to learn about opportunities for small, women-owned and minority-owned businesses to work on the expansion of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.  The project includes adding a tunnel and widening the existing I-64 corridor between Hampton and Norfolk. Connect directly with the VDOT project team and the design-build teams competing for the project. Businesses will also have access to services that can help them certify as a disadvantaged business enterprise or register as a small, women and minority owned business. The outreach meeting will be held Thursday, Oct. 25, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Space is limited, so register online by Oct. 22. More information.
