In preparation for hurricane season, VDOT will be closing parts of Interstate 64 Sunday, May 20th in a drill to test the lane reversal plan. The drill will close I-64 east at the I-295 interchange beginning at 5:20 a.m.
Drivers on I-64 east or on I-295 wishing to take I-64 east will be detoured onto I-295 south to Route 60 or Route 5. VDOT will close all 36 of the I-64 east entrance ramps between I-295 and the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.
The exercise will end at 6:30 a.m. All lanes will reopen at that time. Drivers should expect delays.
