Work continues on a VDOT project to improve safety and traffic flow by realigning the entrance ramp from Belvidere Street to I-95 south/I-64 east and removing an existing slip ramp from Brook Road. Also, crosswalk improvements near the start of the ramp (on Belvidere Street) will increase pedestrian safety and accessibility in the area. Benefits: The project will improve safety, traffic flow and the merge condition at the interchange. In addition, new sidewalks will be installed.
