NORFOLK — A weekend detour for the Interstate 64 west ramp to Interstate 264 east (Exit 284B) and the I-264 east exit to Newtown Road (Exit 15A) has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, weather permitting.

According to VDOT, the detours will allow crews to complete the work required to shift traffic onto a new I-64 west ramp and a new I-264 east collector-distributor road serving Newtown Road:
  • The detour for the I-64 west ramp to I-264 east (Exit 284B) will direct traffic to take the next exit (Exit 284A) and continue to ride the interchange cloverleaf ramps until they exit to I-264 east from I-64 east. Click here to view a map of this detour.
  • The detour for Newtown Road (Exit 15A) will direct traffic to Witchduck Road (Exit 16) and back to Newtown Road via Virginia Beach Boulevard. Click here to view a map of this detour.
If delayed by weather, the detour will be moved to the weekend of Jan. 11-14.
When the detours are lifted, vehicles will be on new pavement and bridge structure.
Motorists should not expect a noticeable change in traffic conditions, however, as portions of the project, including additional travel lanes, remain under construction.
The fixed completion date for the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Phase I project is scheduled for October 2019.
Renderings of the finished project are posted on the homepage of the project website: i64i264improvements.org.
