[ARCHIVED] Rip Rap Road exit will close for 2 nights for I-64 widening project


Sept. 6, 2023 - The Rip Rap Road exit on I-64 East will be closed for two nights,  tentatively scheduled for Sept. 12 and 13 from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. The work is part of the widening of Interstate 64, which will require similar work at additional ramps in the coming weeks.

Crews will re-stripe the ramp the ramp and place concrete barriers for the safety of highway workers. Detour signs will direct drivers to exit at Settlers Landing Road and take Settlers Landing and Armistead Avenue back to Rip Rap.

Other recent roadway changes include:

  • Westbound I-64 traffic has been shifted onto the eastbound side while crews work on the westbound bridge, expected to last for about a year; and
  • The continuous, single-lane closures on I-64 in both directions between Settlers Landing Road/Woodland Road and west of Lasalle Avenue are estimated to be in place into 2026. 

The work is a segment of the VDOT's Hampton Roads Express Lane project, which will ultimately become a 46-mile network of express toll/HOV lanes from east of Denbigh Boulevard in Newport News to the I-64/I-264/I-664 Bowers Hill interchange in Chesapeake.
