I-64 Southside Widening and High Rise Bridge Expansion Project
Overnight Directional Closures on I-64 Near the Great Bridge Boulevard Overpass and on Great Bridge Boulevard in Chesapeake
Nightly detours in place for continued construction of the Great Bridge Boulevard overpass

As part of the ongoing construction of the I-64 Southside Widening and High Rise Bridge Project motorists can expect  nightly detours, first of westbound I-64, then of eastbound I-64 near the Great Bridge Boulevard overpass (between exits 292 and 291B) beginning as early as Saturday night, July 11, through early Friday morning,  July  24.

Additionally, the Great Bridge Boulevard overpass over I-64 will be closed during these times.
 
A full functional closure on I-64 will be in place from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m with only one direction of the interstate detoured at a time. The full directional closure on Great Bridge Boulevard near the overpass will be in place from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

These closures will allow crews to erect beams for the new Great Bridge Boulevard overpass over I-64.

This construction work and detours which are weather- and schedule-dependent will be coordinated with the  full directional closures on I-264 in Virginia Beach . VDOT will provide regular status updates during the course of the work via social media as well as digital signage throughout the corridor.
