Those who commute on I-564 this week may want to rethink their route.

Temporary lane closures extending a half mile between the I-564 Chambers Airfield Tunnel to the  I-564, SR 406, Terminal Blvd-Hampton Blvd. exit are expected to last from Tuesday, Nov. 29 through Friday, Dec. 2.

The left shoulder lane will be closed eastbound from 5 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Westbound closures will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until 2:30 p.m.

On Dec. 3, the right shoulder lane will be closed eastbound from 5 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

The closures are due to the I-564 Intermodal Connector Project construction, which will ultimately connect the interstate through Naval Station Norfolk and to Norfolk International Terminals, according to a VDOT news release.
