About the Project

The I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project, over two phases, provides four miles of interstate improvements from the Twin Bridges in Norfolk to the Witchduck Road interchange in Virginia Beach. The improvements are designed to provide additional capacity, reduce daily congestion and improve safety and traffic operations in the corridor.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) managed construction through two separate construction contracts. Phase I was completed in 2019, and Phase II was completed in fall 2022. 

The improvements include:

  • Widening of I-64 west between the Twin Bridges and the I-264 interchange (Phase I)
  • Two new ramps from I-64 west to I-264 east (Phase I)
  • A new system of collector-distributor (CD) roads on I-264 east (Phase I)
  • Improved interchanges at Newtown and Witchduck roads (Phase II)
  • A Greenwich Road flyover across I-264 that connects with Cleveland Street (Phase II)

How will construction affect traffic on I-64 and I-264? 

To minimize inconvenience to motorists, all lane closures along I-64 and I-264 associated with this project will occur during scheduled, off-peak hours. Lane closures and construction information will be announced weekly throughout the project. Major closures will be announced further in advance.

How will construction affect traffic on the side roads within the project corridor?

Lane closures will be publicized in advance through travel alerts and on this project website. Click here to access the latest traffic alerts. 

When will construction begin and how long will the project take to complete?

Construction on the corridor will continue through 2022, which is when Phase II is scheduled for completion.
