Closure and Detour Of 1st View Street Begins January 26

Crews to begin widening and rehabilitating I-64 over local City street

NORFOLK – As early as January 26, construction crews will close 1st View Street under the I-64 bridge in Norfolk, Virginia. Prior to this road shutting down, the closure and detour of Mason Creek Road will be lifted and open to traffic as early as Monday, January 23. 

A detour route will be implemented as crews begin work to widen the I-64 overpass bridges as part of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Expansion Project. The road closure will remain in effect until summer 2023.

Due to construction activities, 1st View Street must remain closed to the motoring public, cyclists, and pedestrian traffic. Citizens needing to access this area should utilize the signed detour. Construction activity will commence in January with the mobilization and set-up of cranes, excavators, pile hammers and leads. It is possible those residing or working near the project work zone will be impacted by noise emissions. 

Highlighted below is the detour route. Motorists who need to access 1st View Street should take W. Bay Avenue to Granby Street to Tidewater Drive to 1st View Street.
