Closure limited to off-peak, evening hours to minimize traffic impacts
VIRGINIA BEACH –  As work continues on Phase II of the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project in Virginia Beach, crews will temporarily close Grayson Road to through traffic, as early as the evening of Wednesday, July 22.

In an effort to limit impacts to the traveling public, the Grayson Road closure, located near Witchduck Road and the I-264 interchange, will be limited to off-peak, evening hours: Monday through Friday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., with some weekend, night work possible. Turn lanes from Witchduck Road onto Grayson Road at Greenwich Road will also be closed during this time.

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.

Local traffic access will be maintained throughout the duration of the Grayson Road work, allowing property owners and patrons to access the properties along Grayson Road at all times .

Rouse Drive will remain open to traffic at all times.

A signed detour will direct motorists to use Witchduck Road and Bonney Road to get around the closure, when it's in place. The work is expected to take about three weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Additional Detours Resuming This Week

The nighttime closure and detour of Grayson Road will not begin until crews have completed setting girders over I-264 for the Greenwich Road flyover. The girder setting is scheduled for completion on Wednesday, July 22, at 5 a.m., as weather and schedule allow.

Other long-term closures resuming upon the completion of setting girders for the flyover include:
  • Nightly detours on South Witchduck Road northbound at the I-264 interchange, through early August. Click here for the full traffic alert: conta.cc/2XY7Jm4
  • Ongoing closure with detour of southbound Newtown Road at the I-264 interchange, through late August. Click here for the full traffic alert: conta.cc/2xb166Q
