Those on Interstate 64 next week should expect a series of night lane closures — and possibly some delays.

Some lanes and ramps will close between March 18 and 22. Crews contracted by the Virginia Department of Transportation will close a series of interstate on-ramps and off-ramps on I-64 Colonial Parkway to Lee Hall (exit 247).

Drivers planning to be out on the interstate will likely experience nightly delays due to the I-64 widening project. Signed detours will be in place.

A full list of scheduled closures is below:

Lane closures:

  • Alternating single-lane closures on I-64 east and west from Colonial Parkway to Lee Hall (exit 247) March 18-22, starting as early as 7 p.m. until 5 a.m.
  • Single-lane closures on I-64 east and west from Route 199 Lightfoot exit (exit 234) to Route 199 Humelsine Parkway (exit 242) March 18-22, starting as early as 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. for soil boring operations.

Ramp closures:

  • I-64 in both directions off-ramp to Route 143 (exit 243B), as early as 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • I-64 west to Route 199 west (exit 242A), as early as 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • I-64 east to Route 199 east (exit 242B), as early as 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
