You might want to take note of this road closure, part of the I-64/264 Interchange Improvements Project

NORFOLK — As part of ongoing construction on Phase I of the I-64/264 Interchange Improvements Project, the Virginia Department of Transportation will close two lanes of the I-264 east mainline/inside lanes from Military Highway (exit 13) to Newtown Road (exit 15).

The closure will begin Oct. 4 at 10 p.m. through Oct. 7 at 5 a.m., VDOT officials said.

I-264 eastbound traffic can use the collector-distributor road (outside set) of I-264 east via Military Highway (exit 13) to get around the lane closures and re-access mainline I-264 east at Newtown Road (exit 15).

The newly opened flyover from I-64 west to mainline I-264 east is scheduled to remain open while work is underway, officials said.

The I-64 reversible HOV lanes will operate on a normal schedule.

Work is expected to continue in this area for several weeks, with similar closures possible during future weekends.
