VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Police activity on I-264 in Virginia Beach, near London Bridge Road, late Wednesday morning was a “slow roll”, Virginia State Police confirmed to WAVY.
At 11:20 a.m., VDOT reported that all eastbound lanes of I-264 at mile marker 21 were closed to traffic for a “special activity incident.”
Video from VDOT traffic cameras showed police walking side-by-side along all eastbound lanes of travel and traffic being diverted off the interstate.
