Greenwich Road Flyover Taking Shape
New bridge carrying traffic over I-264 opening to motorists in late 2020
Motorists traveling along I-264 will notice the new Greenwich Road flyover beginning to take shape as crews continue construction on the new structure, set to open to traffic in late 2020.

Once completed, the Greenwich Road flyover will carry two-way traffic across I-264 near Top Golf to connect Greenwich Road on the south side of the interstate with Cleveland Street on the north side. 

A portion of Greenwich Road will close to traffic permanently once the flyover opens to traffic, with the road ending in a cul-de-sac just east of the former Norfolk-Southern railroad tracks. The permanent Greenwich Road closure in that location will not occur until after the new flyover has opened to traffic next year.

New Flyover from I-64W to Mainline I-264E Opens to Traffic
The Virginia Department of Transportation opened the new flyover ramp from I-64 west to mainline I-264 east on Friday, Sept. 20, signifying a major milestone toward completion of the project's first phase.

Motorists traveling from I-64 west to mainline I-264 east should keep left to access the new flyover ramp, which places traffic directly into the inside lanes of I-264 east.Motorists traveling from I-64 west to Newtown Road should keep right and follow the existing traffic pattern

As a reminder, the part of the road where flyover traffic merges onto I-264 east will be widened as part of the ongoing Phase II construction.

Flagging Operations
Daytime flagging operations and lane closures are scheduled along Greenwich and Newtown roads to allow crews to safely complete utility work. Motorists should stay alert and pay attention to directions from flaggers.

Grayson Road Utility Work
A portion of Grayson Road -- near Witchduck Road and the I-264 interchange -- will close weeknights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for utility work, starting as early as December. At all other times, the road will be open to through traffic, meaning that vehicles can travel from one end of Grayson Road to the other. Property owners and patrons will have access to the properties along Grayson Road at all times.

Mainline I-264 East Lane Closures at Bridge Over Kempsville Road
Double-lane closures on mainline I-264 east are possible at the I-64 interchange near Kempsville Road during upcoming weekends, beginning as early as 10 p.m. on Friday and continuing through 5 a.m. the following Monday. Closures of nearby ramps as well as schedule changes for the I-64 Express Lanes are also possible during this time.
Interstate Lane and Ramp Closures
Shoulders, lanes and ramps along I-64 and I-264 are also closed periodically for construction. Motorists should also expect night-time lane closures on the interstates when traveling through the project area. Review scheduled weekly lane closures for all of the Hampton Roads region here.
