VDOT DELAYS OPENING OF NEW RAMP FROM I-64 WEST TO I-264 EAST
NORFOLK -- The new flyover ramp from Interstate 64 west to Interstate 264 east will not open to traffic tonight, as originally scheduled, after a pre-opening inspection revealed items that need to be completed prior to the ramp opening.

VDOT initially believed the outstanding items could be completed in time for the flyover ramp to open, but after further review, additional time is needed.

"Ultimately, delivering a quality product is one of VDOT’s top priorities," said Chris Hall, VDOT Hampton Roads district engineer. "We would rather delay the opening of the new ramp to correct these issues while the road is not under traffic." 

VDOT will announce a new opening date once repairs are complete.
For more information on the improvements coming to the I-64/I-264 Interchange and the Newtown and Witchduck ramps, visit  www.i64i264improvements.org .
