VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Virginia Beach City Officials previously said if you're going to the Oceanfront to see fireworks, you need to arrive early.
They said traffic on I-264 eastbound into the Resort Area would be Diverted at Parks Avenue Tuesday evening from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. or until traffic was flowing safely.
Around 9:30 p.m. police said I-264 will remain open.
Police are monitoring cameras and say there is still parking for Independence Day celebrations.
Massive crowds were expected at the Oceanfront.
"We need the public's help to make sure employees, guests or other visitors are aware of these traffic changes," said Deputy City Manager Steve Cover in a press release issued last week.
