In 2016, the Commonwealth of Virginia Transportation Board approved a $2.3 billion project that would eventually widen the corridor of I-64 that includes the bridge to eight lanes, and would replace the drawbridge with a 100 feet fixed span bridge, initially planned for 135 feet, as part of the I-64 Southside Widening Project. The current High Rise Bridge has a bridge lift for large marine traffic traveling through the area. The new bridge will have a 100ft vertical clearance without any bridge lifts so roadway traffic is not impacted by marine traffic. The new bridge will also increase capacity for a key evacuation route and provide an additional Express Lane in each direction. The project will tie into the I-64 Express Lanes.
