Interstate 64 West
1 mile east of VA 143 West(Exit 243B) on I-64 West, I-64 leaves Newport News and briefly enters James City County before entering York County between VA 238(Exit 247) and VA 143 West(Exit 243B). Photo taken 01/26/09.
The exit for VA 143 West(Exit 243B) is actually a left exit. Notice that the overheads say "BUSINESS ROUTE" even though there is not a VA 143 Business in Williamsburg. VA 143 connects to VA 199 and VA 162 before bypassing Colonial Williamsburg to the north. Up ahead is the exit for Busch Gardens(Exit 243A). Photos taken 01/26/09.
Now at the Busch Gardens(Exit 243A) exit on I-64 West, this exit directly connects I-64 to Busch Gardens via a brief freeway with an immediate interchange with US 60 before the entrance gate to Busch Gardens. This is actually Busch Gardens Europe, which is not to be confused with Busch Gardens Africa in Tampa, FL. Photo taken 01/26/09.
Now entering the Williamsburg area, up ahead is the first interchange for VA 199(Exits 242B-A). I-64 West gains an auxiliary lane between the Busch Gardens exit(Exit 243A) and VA 199. Photo taken 01/26/09.
I-64 West at the exit for VA 199 East(Exit 242B). VA 199 connects to Water Country USA and Presidents Park just before the eastern terminus at SR 641. SR 641 connects VA 199 to the Colonial Pkwy west of Yorktown. Photo taken 03/21/09.
Now at the exit for VA 199 West(Exit 242A), VA 199 is an expressway/freeway around Williamsburg with connections to Williamsburg(via US 60 and VA 143) and Jamestown(VA 31). VA 199 also connects with VA 5(along with a short multiplex), VA 321, and US 60 in Lightfoot before its western terminus at I-64(Exit 234) in Lightfoot northwest of Williamsburg. Photo taken 01/26/09.
Now 1 mile east of the western terminus of VA 143(Exit 238). VA 143 and I-64 directly connect to Camp Peary by an access road as it is located just north of the interchange. Photo taken 03/21/09.

Now at the exit for VA 143 East(Exit 238), VA 143 bypasses downtown Williamsburg to the north and intersects the northern terminus of VA 132 and the eastern terminus of VA 5. At this point I-64 West is only signed for "Richmond". Photo taken 03/21/09.
Now on I-64 West 1 mile east of VA 199/SR 646(Exits 234B-A), this interchange marks the western terminus of VA 199 and the eastern terminus of SR 646. Photo taken 03/21/09.
Now 1/2 mile east of SR 646 West(Exit 234B), SR 646 connects I-64 and VA 199 to York River State Park. Photo taken 03/21/09.
Now at the exits for SR 646 West(Exit 234B-first photo) and VA 199 East(Exit 234A-second photo), VA 199 immediately connects to SR 603/Mooretown Rd and US 60 in Lightfoot as a freeway before it loops around Williamsburg and meets I-64(Exits 242A-B) southeast of Williamsburg. Photos taken 03/21/09.
Now outside Williamsburg and surely in James City County, the next interchange is at SR 607/VA 30 North(Exits 231B-A). VA 30 actually begins here contrary to the sign above. This is also one of the few times in Virginia where a direction is not marked for an interchange with two exits. Photo taken 03/21/09.
Now at the exit for SR 607 North(Exit 231B), SR 607 north of I-64 connects to Croaker and York River State Park. Photo taken 03/21/09.
At the exit for SR 607 South/VA 30 North(Exit 231A), use SR 607 south of I-64 to access US 60 near Norge and Toano. VA 30 splits off SR 607 at the first intersection and heads west to US 60 before cutting back north to again intersect I-64(Exit 227). Photo taken 03/21/09.
VA 30(Exit 227) intersects I-64 again only 4 miles west of its southern terminus multiplexed with SR 607 at I-64(Exiits 231B-A). Photo taken 03/21/09.
I-64 West at VA 30(Exit 227). VA 30 south of I-64 switches four-lane roads at a signal with US 60, which connects VA 30 to Toano.

Now on I-64 West at VA 33 East(Exit 220-first photo). VA 33 connects I-64 to VA 249, VA 30(which it multiplexes with into West Point), and VA 273 in Eltham before entering West Point and splitting with VA 30. VA 33 also intersects and multiplexes with VA 14 before intersecting US 17 in the Glenns area. The second photo is a set of I-64/VA 33 West shields as they multiplex between from Exit 220 to Exit 205. Photos taken 03/21/09.
Now on I-64/VA 33 West 1 mile east of VA 155(Exit 214), VA 155 connects to but does not actually go through New Kent Courthouse or Charles City Courthouse. Photo taken 03/21/09.
