NORFOLK – As part of ongoing construction on Phase I of the I-64/264 Interchange Improvements Project, the Virginia Department of Transportation will close two lanes of the I-264 east mainline/inside lanes from I-64 to Newtown Road (exit 15) beginning Oct. 18 at 10 p.m. through Oct. 21 at 5 a.m.
Interstate 264 eastbound traffic can utilize the collector-distributor road (outside set) of I-264 east via Military Highway (exit 13) to get around the lane closures and re-access mainline I-264 east at Newtown Road (exit 15).
The newly opened flyover from I-64 west to mainline I-264 east is scheduled to remain open while work is underway.
During this time, Ramp 284A from I-64 east to I-264 east will be closed, with a detour to Indian River Road. The I-64 reversible HOV lanes will also be closed to eastbound traffic during this time, reopening to westbound traffic at 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 20.
Work is expected to continue in this area for several weeks, with similar closures possible during future weekends.
