NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Rain has delayed Monday morning's planned opening of the Interstate 64 eastbound ramp to Norview Avenue.
A Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman said crews had to stop work on the ramp Sunday evening due to bad weather. The ramp will open when the rain stops and the crews finish the work, according to the spokeswoman.
The ramp will remove the left turn motorists make from Norview Avenue east onto Interstate 64 east towards Virginia Beach. Motorists who need access to Interstate 64 east from Norview Avenue east will do so using a right turn lane that directly enters the new ramp.
The current signal operation and timing will be adjusted to accommodate the new traffic pattern. Access to the Interstate 64 east ramp from Norview Avenue west will remain the same.
VDOT officials said the Norview Avenue Ramps Improvement Project will enhance safety at the interchange by removing the existing weave and provide an easier movement from Norview Avenue and the interstate.
VDOT officials plan to have the entire project completed in fall 2013.
