I-64 Southside Widening and High Rise Bridge Expansion Project
Overnight Detour on Military Highway at the I-64 Overpass
Motorists on Military Highway near the I-64 overpass will notice a traffic shift as early as Monday, June 7. Crews will shift traffic to the inside lanes, while closing the outside lanes. Military Highway will remain one lane in each direction during this shift.

To facilitate this traffic shift, northbound and southbound Military Highway between the I-64 on- and off-ramps will be closed to all traffic overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning on the following dates:

  • Monday evening, June 7 - northbound
  • Thursday evening, June 10 - southbound
  • Friday evening, June 11 - contingency date

Motorists should follow the detours below. Detour information will also be designated with signage along the roadway.

All construction schedules are pending, due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. Changes to the schedule will be updated on the project website traffic alerts page.

This closure will allow construction crews to safely continue work on the widening of the I-64 overpass as part of the I-64 Southside Widening and High Rise Bridge Project.
