Heads up: VDOT will be testing tide gates at the HRBT this weekend

VDOT will conduct routine tide gate testing at the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel beginning at 1 a.m. on Sunday (May 3) to ensure facilities are prepared for possible adverse weather conditions.

Motorists traveling Interstate 64 to the HRBT during that time should expect to be stopped for up to 90 minutes in each direction. To avoid delays, motorists are encouraged to use the I-664 Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel as an alternate route.

Crews will first test the eastbound gates and then test the westbound gates at the HRBT. Full directional closures are as follows:
