McLean Contracting Company was a major subcontractor to E. V. Williams on this project responsible for the construction of five bridges. Those bridges consisted of two structural steel box girder braided ramp structures , two prestressed concrete bridges over NS Railroad and a phased replacement of the existing Battlefield Blvd. Overpass Bridge.

The two braided ramp structures were 515 feet and 763 feet long by 33 feet wide. They functioned as on ramps to I-64 while allowing exiting traffic to pass underneath them. The two RR bridges were +/- 170 feet long utilizing prestressed concrete girder design for the superstructure.

The Battlefield Blvd Overpass Bridge was 484 feet long and 144 feet wide. This bridge utilized phased construction to completely replace the existing structure while maintaining interstate traffic underneath and local Battlefield Blvd. traffic on the structure. This bridge utilized structural steel girder design for the superstructure.
