HAMPTON ROADS BRIDGE-TUNNEL EAST NIGHTTIME CLOSURES SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 19-22
Crews will have overnight closures to accommodate motorists

SUFFOLK– After much review of traffic closure alternatives, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has changed its closures times in order to complete paving of the eastbound lanes of the      Interstate 64 Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT). The eastbound lanes of the HRBT, towards Virginia Beach, will close multiple times over the weekend beginning, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012.

In an effort to better accommodate the motoring public and local events, crews will close and reopen lanes at the following times:
• Friday, Oct. 19, beginning at 9 p.m. until Saturday, Oct. 20, at 9 a.m.
• Saturday, Oct. 20, beginning at 9 p.m. until Sunday, Oct. 21, at 9 a.m.
• Sunday, Oct. 21, beginning at 9 p.m. until Monday, Oct. 22, at 4 a.m.

During the closures, crews will mill and place new asphalt overlay in the left lane within the eastbound tube of the HRBT. In addition, various traffic safety items will be replaced including pavement markings. This work will conclude the project that was started on the weekend of Friday, Sept. 14, 2012. Westbound traffic will not be impacted and all westbound lanes will be open during construction.

Motorists are strongly urged to avoid the area near I-64 east HRBT during the advertised closure times, and should use the Interstate 664 Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel (MMMBT) as an alternate route. Crews will have detours in place for motorists who need to travel in these areas during the closure.

The signed detours for I-64 HRBT east will be as follows:
• From I-64 east approaching I-664 south (Hampton Coliseum), motorists must stay on I-664 south through the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel (MMMBT). Follow I-664 south to I-264 east towards the Downtown Tunnel. Follow I-264 east through the tunnel to the end of the detour at I-64 east and I-264 east (Barry Robinson Interchange).
• For motorist staying on I-64 east towards the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel, they must exit at Mallory Street then head west on I-64 towards Williamsburg. Follow I-664 south towards the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel (MMMBT) to I-264 east towards the Downtown Tunnel. Follow I-264 east through the tunnel to the end of the detour at I-64 east and I-264 east (Barry Robinson Interchange).

Motorists are encouraged to call 511 or the Traffic Information Line at 757-361-3016, visit www.511virginia.org, or listen to Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) 1680 AM for current traffic and travel information.
