64/264 Detours Rescheduled to Jan. 11-14

NORFOLK –  A weekend detour for the I-64 west ramp to I-264 east (Exit 284B) and the I-264 east exit to Newtown Road (Exit 15A) has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, weather permitting.

*** If delayed by weather, the detour will be moved to the weekend of Jan. 18-21. ***

The detours will allow crews to complete the work required to shift traffic onto a new I-64 west ramp and a new I-264 east collector-distributor road serving Newtown Road:

  • Motorists will encounter two options while the I-64 west ramp to I-264 east (Exit 284B) is closed for construction:


  • If motorists don’t take the above alternate route, a detour will direct traffic to continue past Exit 284B at the interchange and take the next exit (Exit 284A) and continue to ride the interchange cloverleaf ramps until they exit to I-264 east from I-64 east. View map of interchange detour.

  • The detour for Newtown Road (Exit 15A) will direct traffic to Witchduck Road (Exit 16) and back to Newtown Road via Virginia Beach Boulevard. View map of detour.

When the detours are lifted, vehicles will be on new pavement and bridge structure. Motorists should not expect a noticeable change in traffic conditions, however, as portions of the project, including additional travel lanes, remain under construction.

The fixed completion date for the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Phase I project is scheduled for October 2019. Renderings of the finished project are posted on the homepage of the project website: i64i264improvements.org .
