I-64 west fully reopens ahead of HRBT in Norfolk after closing for ‘unscheduled inspection’ of overpass

Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — All westbound lanes have reopened on Interstate 64 in Norfolk ahead of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel after all lanes were shut down due to an “unscheduled emergency inspection of the Evans Road overpass” near Bay Avenue.

VDOT says the inspection came after an “apparent pavement anomaly” that was reported Friday morning. There were no emergent issues with the overpass itself, VDOT says.

The inspection found that the right lane just before the overpass needed pavement patching. Crews used cold-patch asphalt to get the road back open and VDOT says crews will go back Friday night for additional patching. That will require a lane closure.

Traffic was first being diverted at Granby Street (exit 267A) to the Ocean View area, and one lane later reopened.
