Phase II of the I-64/I-264 Interchange Improvements Project will extend the new collector-distributor roadway built in Phase I from the Newtown Road interchange to the Witchduck Road interchange, reconfigure the south side of both interchanges to eliminate the weave movement, and build a flyover across I-264 to connect Greenwich Road on the south side of the interstate with Cleveland Street on the north side.
To improve the traffic operations, the Greenwich Road connection at the five-legged intersection at Witchduck Road will be removed, and the existing stretch of Greenwich Road will terminate at a cul-de-sac just east of the former Norfolk-Southern railroad tracks. To maintain connectivity on Greenwich Road, the new flyover will be built over I-264 to connect with Cleveland Street. The Greenwich Road connection with Witchduck Road will not be removed until the new flyover to Cleveland Street is complete. In addition, Cleveland Street will be re-striped to four lanes, from its current two.
The below renderings show what the I-64/264 corridor will look like once Phase II of the project is completed. Click on each image for a larger version.
Witchduck Road at I-264 Interchange
To improve traffic operations, the Greenwich Road connection at the five-legged intersection at Witchduck Road will be removed, shown in its new configuration in the middle of this rendering. The existing stretch of Greenwich Road will terminate at a cul-de-sac just east of the former Norfolk-Southern railroad tracks, which is just beyond the left corner of this rendering.
Newtown Road at Greenwich Road and I-264
Interstate 264 is depicted extending from the top left corner, with the Newtown Road interchange improvements shown below.
I-264 and Cleveland Street
The new Greenwich Road flyover connects to Cleveland Street near the left corner. Cleveland Street is shown in the middle of the image, with I-264 running parallel.
Greenwich Road Flyover
Greenwich Road bisects the image diagonally as it diverges to the new flyover crossing I-264. Top Golf is pictured in the middle right of the image.
