Before we get to your Traffic in the News headlines, here’s a list of closures that may impact your commute.

Construction & Closures

Depending on where you’re heading, you’re likely using a major highway, tunnel or bridge. With that in mind, these major construction updates or notifications are organized by road or structure. If it’s not a full/continuous closure, or it’s happening in the 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. timeframe, we won’t make a written mention of it.

I-64, Express Lanes:

  • Full closure in both directions:
    • Jan. 29 to Feb. 3 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
    • Jan. 30 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


The 24-hour full time closure of the W. Bay Avenue on-ramp to I-64 East has been extended through March 2023. Motorists should continue to follow the detour to access I-64 East using the on-ramp at Patrol Road.

  • Continue straight on W. Bay Avenue
  • Turn right on Granby Street
  • Continue approximately one mile
  • Turn right on Patrol Road
  • Turn left to the I-64 East on-ramp

The extension of the closure is necessary as crews work to prepare the new on-ramp to I-64 East. When the new on-ramp reopens in March 2023, motorists should prepare for a new traffic pattern. This traffic shift will allow crews to continue working on widening the interstate.
