It is likely that all traffic east bound on I-264 will be redirected westbound on Friday (4-25-14) and Saturday (4-26-14) nights depending on the level of traffic.

During this traffic diversion, vehicles will not be able to exit I-264W until they reach Lynnhaven Parkway.

Also, during this diversion, vehicles will be able to enter the area only via northbound General Booth Blvd., eastbound Virginia Beach Blvd, eastbound Laskin Road or southbound Shore Drive.

The traffic diversion/street closures will also affect most of Atlantic Ave vehicle traffic.

Officers will be on scene monitoring traffic and motorists are encouraged to make necessary arrangements to ensure that they are aware of the changes.

Delays should be expected in leaving the area.

    Its amazing how actions from the 50’s and 60’s are still thrown up today. I, a white, educated man in my 40’s have grown up seeing inequalities come more level. The racism I see in society today is from AA people( black skinned people). Funny how in the quote above….2/3 of all Violent crimes was used as a example. To which..almost Dr Devon replied about white women on weed and white priviledge….. Apples to apples.:not hardly. He called the need for Black Colleges. Due to white racism… Devon said”I know it’s hard to believe, but racism from whites created a need for black colleges ” Then said he does not say whites are racist???? I would think that a need for education produced those schools. Growing up in eastern NC and the tidewater area of VA.. I have always been around, was taught by, have respect for, and Devon , I appreciate the AA people who have had an Influence on my life. I was raised to tolerate all races. I promote it to MY college age kids …… How can I be lumped into a group and said to feel one way …just because I am a white man? That is racist of you Devon
