New ramp to I-264 east at Greenwich Road opening to traffic

Virginia Beach

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Starting as early as Thursday, VDOT crews will open a new ramp to get onto Interstate 264 east.

The new ramp will create a new traffic pattern at the roundabout on Greenwich Road and give drivers a new way to access the interstate going eastbound.

The new on-ramp and traffic pattern was a part of the reconfiguration of the Newtown Road interchange with I-264.

Through the project, VDOT aims to reduce conflict points, increase efficiency and minimizing weaving movements as drivers merge.

The existing ramp onto I-264 east at Newtown Road will close permanently as early as 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 28. It will be demolished and be turned into a stormwater management basin.

The updated traffic patterns are:

  • For traffic on Newtown Road heading to I-264 east: Traffic traveling in either direction of Newtown Road will take eastbound Greenwich Road and utilize the roundabout to access I-264 east.
  • For traffic on eastbound Greenwich Road: Traffic traveling on eastbound Greenwich Road (toward the Greenwich Road flyover) will stay left on the new roundabout to access I-264 east or go right to follow the roundabout and continue on eastbound Greenwich Road.
  • For traffic on westbound Greenwich Road: Traffic traveling on westbound Greenwich Road (toward Newtown Road) will turn right at the roundabout near the Courtyard by Marriott hotel and utilize the new ramp to access I-264 east. or stay left on to the new roundabout to continue on westbound Greenwich Road and access Newtown Road.
