Interstate 464

Interstate 464 North
Interstate 464 begins where Virginia 168 leaves at the Interstate 64 (Exit 291) cloverleaf interchange north of Great Bridge in Chesapeake (pop. 199,184). The first off-ramp of the 4.71 mile Interstate is that of the Exit 1B cloverleaf ramp for Interstate 64 Inner. Interstate 64 travels the Hampton Roads Beltway for eight more miles before concluding at the junction of Interstate 264 & 664 (Exit 299). Photo taken 12/17/01.
A second view of the Interstate 464 sign bridge depicted above. Interstate 64 in conjunction with Interstate 664 provides a route from Chesapeake and northeastern North Carolina (via Virginia 168 and the Chesapeake Expressway) to Newport News, Richmond, and other interior Virginia communities via the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel Crossing. Photo taken 12/17/01.
An Interstate 464 begin shield assembly is posted at the merge of Interstate 64 Inner traffic onto Interstate 464 northbound. An end sign is posted in the southbound direction. Photo taken 12/17/01.
A diamond interchange composes the first mainline exit of Interstate 464 northbound. Intersecting the freeway here is U.S. 13 (Military Highway) in an east-west fashion. The Military Highway composes a loop arterial between Suffolk (pop. 63,677) and Norfolk by way of Chesapeake and Virginia Beach inside the Hampton Roads Beltway system. Photo taken 12/17/01.
North of the Freeman Avenue diamond interchange (Exit 3) is the junction with Virginia 337 (Poindexter Street). Designated Exits 4A/B, Virginia 337 crosses the Elizabeth River between Virginia 239 at the Norfolk Navy Shipyard eastward to Bainbridge Boulevard (U.S. 460 & Virginia 166). The Elizabeth River crossing of Virginia 337 consists of the 1920s-era "Jordan Bridge", a horizontal-lift span.1 Photo taken 12/17/01.
One half mile south of the Exit 5 half diamond interchange at South Main Street. Interstate 464 crosses into the city of Norfolk (pop. 234,403) at this point of the freeway. South Main Street carries Virginia 337 between Bainbridge Boulevard and Berkley Avenue to the east. Photo taken 12/17/01.
The downtown skyline of Norfolk comes into view at the South Main Street off-ramp (Exit 5). The final interchange of Interstate 464 occurs in 0.75 miles at Interstate 264 to the east of the Elizabeth River. Virginia 337 northbound merges onto Interstate 464 one half mile to the north to cross into downtown via Interstate 264 east. Photo taken 12/17/01.

A complex interchange composes the northern terminus of Interstate 464 at Exits 6A/B. A loop ramp is neccessary for the westbound Interstate 264 off-ramp due to the close proximity of the Elizabeth River Tunnel. Mainline traffic defaults onto Interstate 264 east (Exit 6B) for downtown Norfolk. Attached to the left of the sign bridge is an advance guide sign for the Exit 9 (Saint Pauls Boulevard) ramp of Interstate 264 east into downtown Norfolk. That ramp departs Interstate 264 in 0.75 miles directly from the draw bridge ahead. Photo taken 12/17/01.
Traffic utilizing the Exit 6A loop ramp for Interstate 264 westbound is given one last opportunity to depart the freeway before the Elizabeth River Tunnel descent. The off-ramp (Exit 6C) carries traffic onto nearby State Street, two blocks north of Berkley Avenue (Virginia 337). Photo taken 12/17/01.
An end shield of Interstate 464 northbound is situated alongside the on-ramp from Virginia 337 (Berkley Avenue) ahead of the merge with Interstate 264 east. Traffic crosses the Berkeley Bridge draw span over the east branch of the Elizabeth River ahead. Photo taken 09/05/10.
Interstate 464 South
Interstate 464 southbound draws to a close at the U.S. 17 (formerly Virginia 104) interchange with Virginia 168. A diagrammatical overhead attached to the Virginia 168 northbound loop ramp to U.S. 17 (Dominion Boulevard) southbound partitions motorists between the Great Bridge Bypass & Chesapeake Expressway and Dominion Boulevard. Virginia 104 was replaced with a realigned U.S. 17 by Winter of 2002. Photo taken 01/06/01.
