View the Final Ramp Configuration
The following renderings show how the Phase I ramp improvements will look from different perspectives. The first, looking west, shows the new collector-distributor road parallel to I-264 east. Click each image to see a full, high-resolution rendering.
The next rendering, looking northeast, shows how the new ramp from I-64 west will split into a two-lane ramp to I-264 east and a single-lane ramp to the new collector-distributor road for the Newtown and Witchduck exits.
The final rendering, also looking northeast, shows the start of the improvements, which begin just after the Twin Bridges and include two lanes for traffic exiting I-64 west, versus the one lane that motorists currently have. Noise barrier placement and a new stormwater retention pond is also shown.

About the Project
The I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project, over two phases, will provide approximately 4 miles of interstate improvements from the Twin Bridges in Norfolk to the Witchduck Road interchange in Virginia Beach. The improvements will provide additional capacity, reduce daily congestion and improve safety and traffic operations in the corridor.
This project will be built in two phases. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will manage construction through two separate construction contracts. Phase I is fully funded, with funding by the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission through the Hampton Roads Transportation Fund (HRTF), as well as from federal and state resources. Phase II has been funded for right of way and design and development through the HRTF and state and federal resources.
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)
