Additional lane closures planned next week throughout the corridor
NORFOLK/VIRGINIA BEACH – As progress continues on the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project, crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation will implement a continuous, single-lane closure starting this weekend on the I-264 east collector-distributor road (outside set) between the I-64 west off-ramp and Newtown Road (exit 15).

Beginning as early as 7 p.m. on Feb. 25, the left lane of the collector-distributor road will close to traffic, allowing crews to perform barrier work. This closure will remain in place continuously through March 12. The off-ramp at Newtown Road (exit 15) will remain open at all times while the lane closure is in place.

Additional lane closures scheduled along the project corridor in the coming week include:
  • Ongoing, continuous closure of the HOV lane on I-264 west from Independence Boulevard (exit 17) to Witchduck Road (exit 16). Click here for the full traffic alert: https://conta.cc/3GqXElY. Note that this closure will not be in place from Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. to Feb. 28 at 5 a.m.
  • Alternating, multi-lane closures on I-264 in both directions from Newtown Road (exit 15) to Witchduck Road (exit 16) Feb. 27 to March 6 from 7 p.m. until as late as 10 a.m.
  • Alternating, mobile, single-lane closures on I-64 east at the I-264 interchange on Feb. 27 to March 5 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Continuous, double-lane closure on I-264 west between Witchduck Road (exit 16) and Newtown Road (exit 15) on March 4 at 7 p.m. to March 7 at 5 a.m.
