Detour in place while crews perform bridge work
NORFOLK – Contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will implement a full, overnight closure of Newtown Road at the I-264 interchange for bridge work on Sept. 18, weather permitting.

The closures of both northbound and southbound Newtown Road will begin as early as 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 through 5 a.m. on Sept. 19. Northbound Newtown Road will be closed just north of Greenwich Road, and southbound Newtown Road will be closed just south of Center Drive.

Also during this time, left turns will be restricted from the I-264 off-ramp onto Newtown Road (exit 15). Greenwich Road will remain open to traffic at all times during this work.

While the closure is in place, a signed detour will direct southbound motorists to utilize Center Drive and Kempsville Road before re-accessing Newtown Road. Northbound motorists will reverse the detour.

Crews are widening the I-264 bridge over Newtown Road, as part of extension of the existing collector-distributor road, from Newtown Road (exit 15) to Witchduck Road (exit 16).

This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule is subject to change.
