NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Traffic on at the interchange of I-64 and I-264 is expected to be delayed and partially stopped at times due to work by Dominion Energy Virginia.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says Dominion will be transferring high-voltage transmission lines to new, taller towers on both sides of I-64.

VDOT says this work is part of Phase I of the  I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project.

Motorists are being cautioned to give themselves extra time or plan alternate routes if traveling in the area between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Traffic from the I-264 east and west ramps to I-64 will see stoppages and delays during this work.

VDOT says Virginia State Police and traffic control vehicles will lead motorists in slow processions of 10 mph starting at Northampton Boulevard on I-64 East and Indian River Road on I-64 West.

This slowing pattern will be repeated several times during the work, and could last as long as 15 minutes.

Curlew Drive traffic will be closed at the I-64 overpass. The work was originally scheduled for Monday and Tuesday night, but due to weather, the work was postponed Tuesday night. If weather forces another postponement, crews will try again during the same hours Thursday night to complete the work.
