Ramp will close from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. daily to improve traffic management
The gate at the 15th View ramp onto I-64 West from W. Ocean View Avenue will be closed daily from 12:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. beginning May 26, 2021. During the time of the closure, drivers will be required to access I-64W from the entry points on 4th View Street, Tidewater Drive, and Granby Street. Access to the ramp will resume outside of those times.
Additionally, concrete barriers will be installed on W. Ocean View Ave. at the 15th View ramp as early as Monday, May 24, at which point the new traffic pattern will take effect. This pattern eliminates the left turn access from W. Ocean View Avenue and the straight exit from the ramp.
These modifications, made in partnership between the City of Norfolk and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), will encourage safe driving behavior by helping to manage cut-through traffic during rush hour and preventing wrong-way entry activity onto the interstate via the exit ramp at 15th View Street.
These temporary modifications will be in place for the duration of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Expansion Project which will be completed in 2025.
