NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Expect alternating single lane closures on Interstate 64 in Newport News, York and James City counties as crews continue working on the I-64 widening project.

The closures will be between Jefferson Avenue (Exit 255) and Lee Hall (Exit 247) from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through June 30.

Currently, I-64 shrinks from four lanes down to two when you enter northern Newport News and that consistently causes a huge traffic problem for people trying to get to Williamsburg and Richmond. This project will eventually expand I-64 to six lanes from Yorktown Road to just west of Jefferson Avenue.
