People who commute on I-564 next week may want to rethink their route.

Temporary lane closures extending a half mile between the I-564 Chambers Airfield Tunnel to the  I-564, SR 406, Terminal Blvd-Hampton Blvd. exit are expected to last from Monday, Nov. 21 through Tuesday, Nov. 22.

The left shoulder lane will be closed eastbound from 5:30 a.m. Monday to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Westbound closures will begin 8:30 a.m. Monday to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The closures are due to the I-564 Intermodal Connector Project construction, which will ultimately connect the interstate through Naval Station Norfolk and to Norfolk International Terminals, according to a VDOT news release.
