Drivers in Hampton Roads can expect closures on water crossings, interstates and notable detours for the week of Oct. 20 to Oct. 26.

Because of the potential for inclement weather, the previously announced lane closures for this weekend on mainline I-264 east near I-64 have been canceled.

At this time, a double-lane closure of the I-264 east mainline/inside set from I-64 to Newtown Road (exit 15) is scheduled beginning Oct. 25 at 10 p.m. through Oct. 28 at 5 a.m.

These closures are subject to change based on weather conditions.

This list covers full closures of interstates, ramps, bridges and primary roads, and single-lane closures at the bridge-tunnels and the Berkley, High Rise and James River bridges.
