The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be performing emergency repairs to a portion of the eastbound Interstate 64 bridge over Armistead Avenue near LaSalle Avenue in Hampton. 

Two box beams will be replaced within the auxiliary ramp lane on the eastbound I-64 bridge, requiring the closure of the LaSalle Avenue on-ramp and auxiliary lane on I-64 east for the duration of repairs, as well as intermittent closures of Armistead Avenue in each direction.

Once the beams are replaced, the bridge deck within the ramp lane closure will be milled and overlaid.
