First Warning Traffic – Monday closures at the 64/264 interchange, bridge openings and traffic delays

BRIDGE OPENINGS:

James River Bridge 11:00 AM

EXPECT DELAYS, STOPPAGES MONDAY, TUESDAY NIGHTS ON I-64 NEAR I-264 INTERCHANGE

Impacts Scheduled for 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. for Dominion Virginia Power Work 

NORFOLK – Motorists on Interstate 64 should expect delays and repeated stoppages between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. the nights of Monday, May 22, and Tuesday, May 23.

Traffic in both directions on I-64 will be slowed and potentially stopped multiple times at the Curlew Drive overpass – near the I-264 interchange – to allow Dominion Virginia Power to transfer high-voltage transmission lines to new, taller towers on either side of I-64. The utility work is in support of Phase I of the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project.

Motorists should give themselves extra time or plan alternate routes if traveling the I-64 corridor in this area between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Monday or Tuesday. Traffic from I-264 east and west ramps to I-64 east will also experience stoppages and delays during this work. (See map below)

During these operations, Virginia State Police and traffic control vehicles will lead motorists in slow processions of 10 mph, beginning at Northampton Boulevard for I-64 east traffic and at Indian River Road for I-64 west traffic.

This slowing of traffic will be repeated several times between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Each of these processions may end in a complete stoppage of traffic near the Curlew Drive overpass. These stoppages may last as long as 15 minutes at the front of the procession before traffic is released and preparations are made for the next slow procession.

Wednesday, May 24, and Thursday, May 25, are scheduled as backup dates if weather forces Dominion to postpone its work.

Additionally, Curlew Drive will be closed to traffic at the I-64 overpass from Saturday, May 20, to Monday, May, 22; overnight on Tuesday, May 23; and intermittently the rest of the week as Dominion finishes its work.
