Motorists advised to stay alert to new traffic patterns on I-64 east and west starting as early as May 12 
YORK COUNTY – Traffic shifts are scheduled this week, weather permitting, in the third segment of the Interstate 64 Widening Project, moving eastbound and westbound traffic on I-64 into new traffic configurations at the Queens Creek Bridges. With both the new section of the westbound bridge and the new eastbound bridge now complete, these new traffic configurations will allow for the final demolition and construction of the outside remaining portion of the previously existing westbound bridge. 
Starting overnight as early as May 12, project crews will first shift eastbound traffic on I-64 at the Queens Creek Bridges to the right, from eastbound traffic’s current configuration on the new westbound section of the bridge, over to the newly constructed eastbound bridge. 
Following the eastbound traffic shift, project crews are scheduled to shift westbound traffic to the left starting overnight as early as May 13, from the previously existing outside portion of the westbound bridge to the new inside westbound Queens Creek Bridge. 
Once complete, traffic traveling eastbound on I-64 will be utilizing the final eastbound bridge, and westbound traffic will be utilizing the new westbound bridge. Once this new traffic pattern is in place, demolition followed by the construction of the remaining portion of the new westbound bridge will begin.
To complete the traffic shift operations, crews will alternate single-lane closures in this section of the I-64 corridor on May 11-12, starting as early as 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. eastbound and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. westbound, as well as implement brief stoppages overnight to transition the traffic safely to the new lanes. The lane closures and brief stoppages are also scheduled to take place on I-64 west for May 13, from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Current Traffic Configuration

LONG-TERM CLOSURE FOR I-64 BRIDGE WIDENING TO BE LIFTED ON COLONIAL PARKWAY

Two-way traffic to resume on Colonial Parkway at the I-64 overpasses by Friday, Jan. 15

YORK COUNTY—Starting Friday, Jan. 15, contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) I-64 Widening Segment III Project are scheduled to reopen the year-long, single-lane consecutive closure on Colonial Parkway at the I-64 overpass bridges. Removal of the long-term closure will allow two-way traffic to resume on Colonial Parkway, with traffic no longer being alternated in each direction using a temporary traffic signal.

Temporary, intermittent stoppages are anticipated to take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, to adjust traffic barriers in preparation for reopening the two-way traffic configuration. Occasional overnight closures under flagger control on Colonial Parkway will take place as needed as the remaining bridgework is completed.

As part of the I-64 Widening Segment III project, crews used this closure to rehabilitate and widen the I-64 bridges over Colonial Parkway while also working to match and maintain the existing historic aesthetics seen along the Parkway. The lane closure allowed for the safe removal of a portion of existing brickwork and construction of the new custom brickwork and bridge arches on the I-64 overpass bridge over and directly adjacent to the Parkway.

Motorists are reminded to continue to obey the reduced 25 mph work zone speed limit on Colonial Parkway and to drive with caution when traveling in the project work zone, especially when navigating the upcoming new traffic pattern.

All project work and scheduled closures are dependent upon weather conditions.

To complete the traffic shift operations, crews will alternate single-lane closures in this section of the corridor on I-64 west, May 11-12, from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m., as well as implement brief stoppages overnight to transition the traffic safely to the new lanes.

Another traffic shift is estimated to take place as early as next week, on I-64 east, from approximately 1.5 miles east of Route 199/Newman Road (exit 234) to approximately 1 mile west of Route 143/Capital Landing Road (exit 238), as weather and schedule permits.

While lower traffic volumes continue to be observed overall in Hampton Roads recently, motorists are reminded that they must still obey the reduced 55 mph speed limit and drive with caution when traveling in the project work zone, especially when navigating the new traffic patterns.

For a visual demonstration of the first new traffic pattern implemented on April 14, a video drive-through of I-64 east, between Route 143 and Lakeshead Drive, can be viewed on the VDOT YouTube account here: https://youtu.be/MomcC9yYrgg.

SERIES OF TRAFFIC SHIFTS TO BEGIN ON THIRD SEGMENT OF PENINSULA I-64 WIDENING PROJECT

Motorists advised to stay alert to new traffic patterns on I-64 east as early as April 14
YORK COUNTY – As construction continues to progress on the third segment of the Interstate 64 Widening Project, a series of traffic shifts are scheduled to begin, moving traffic left from the two existing concrete travel lanes onto the new travel lanes in the former median to allow for the full reconstruction of the outside lanes.
 
Starting as early as overnight Tuesday, April 14, the first scheduled traffic shift will take place eastbound on I-64, starting from east of Route 143/Capitol Landing Road (exit 238) and transitioning back to the existing outside lanes before the Lakeshead Drive overpass bridges, weather permitting.
 
Once the shift is complete, motorists will begin using the two inside travel lanes, as well as traveling across a newly constructed bridge over Queens Creek. During this traffic configuration, this new bridge over Queens Creek will temporarily carry eastbound traffic, as the demolition and reconstruction of the eastbound bridge is underway. Ultimately, this new section of bridge will become the westbound bridge over Queens Creek at project completion.
To complete the traffic shift operations, crews will alternate single-lane closures on I-64 east between Route 143 and Colonial Parkway, April 13-14 from 7 p.m. until as late as 7 a.m., as well as implement a brief stoppage overnight to transition the traffic safely to the new lanes.
 
The next traffic shift is currently estimated to take place as early as the week of April 20, which will shift eastbound traffic to the inside lanes on I-64 from Colonial Parkway to the eastern limits of the project near Route 199/Humelsine Parkway (exit 242).
 
While lower traffic volumes have been observed overall in Hampton Roads recently, motorists are reminded that they must still obey the reduced 55 mph speed limit and drive with caution when traveling in the project work zone, especially when navigating the upcoming new traffic patterns.

COLONIAL PARKWAY REDUCED TO SINGLE LANE DURING I-64 BRIDGE REHABILITATION AND WIDENING WORK

The long-term, consecutive lane closure to begin as early as mid-morning Jan. 15

YORK COUNTY—Starting as early as after morning rush hour on Wednesday, Jan. 15, contractor crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) I-64 Widening Segment III Project are scheduled to begin the installation of a temporary traffic signal and consecutive lane closure on Colonial Parkway at the I-64 overpass bridges. The long-term closure will reduce Colonial Parkway to one lane, with traffic being alternated in each direction using a traffic signal. Temporary, intermittent stoppages are also anticipated to take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15 to install temporary concrete barriers to complete the new single-lane configuration.

As part of the I-64 Widening Segment III project, project crews will be rehabilitating and widening the I-64 bridges over Colonial Parkway while also working to match and maintain the existing historic aesthetics seen along the Parkway. The lane closure will allow for the safe removal of a portion of existing brickwork and construction of the new brickwork and bridge arches on the I-64 overpass bridge over and directly adjacent to the Parkway.

 The lane closure is estimated to be in place for approximately one year. During this time, the speed limit has been reduced to 25 mph through the work zone on Colonial Parkway.  

All project work and scheduled closures are dependent upon weather conditions.
