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.
