VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Changes are continuing to happen at one of the biggest hot spots for traffic in Hampton Roads.
VDOT crews have reached a milestone at the I-264/64 interchange, as part of the ongoing $200 million improvement project, which has now entered phase II.
A new flyover bridge is coming to the interchange.
If you travel this way often, there will be new traffic impacts.
A spokesperson for VDOT says they’ve reached a major milestone by setting girders by Witchduck Road that will support the new bridge deck.
The entire interchange improvement project is set to be complete at the end of next year, but a spokesperson for VDOT says they hope to have the new flyover by the end of this year.
“This flyover is going to carry traffic from Greenwich Road across the interstate to Cleveland Street and make a connection for local traffic so they can travel without actually having to get on to the interstate,” said Jordan-Ashley Walker, spokesperson for VDOT.
Here’s how it’s going to affect you: There’s going to be full overnight closure of I-264 West between Witchduck Road and Newtown Road starting on Sunday, July 12 through Thursday, July 30. Expect those closures from midnight to 5 a.m. and take Virginia Beach Blvd. instead. You’re also going to see lane closures earlier in the evening and weekends. You’ll see eastbound closures starting as early as July 18.
