AlexandriaVA:
I figured that was the case....thanks.

froggie:
The numbering scheme gets brought up in the local media at least once a year.  Long story short, changing things would be just as confusing as leaving them as-is.

Mapmikey:
Renumbering was seriously considered in the 1990s:

In May 1996 (CTB), VDOT presented 4 options to renumber the interstates in the Hampton Roads area:
1. Extend I-664 around to I-264/VA 44 and replace VA 44 with I-64
2. Extend I-664 around to I-264/VA 44 and replace VA 44 with I-664
3. Replace I-664 with I-64 and replace VA 44 with I-64; Replace I-64 across HRBT to I-264/VA 44 with I-664
4. Replace I-664 with I-64 and replace VA 44 with I-64; Replace I-64 across HRBT to I-264/VA 44 with I-864
The CTB deferred action to June 1996 whereby they elected to defer again. There was no further mention of anything related to this until they renumbered VA 44 as I-264 in Aug 1997.

I have not seen anything in CTB minutes since then...

I thought option 1 made the most sense of the 4 above...

The great escape: It took this driver two minutes to get across three lanes of traffic & over the bollards to freedom (aka the I-395 express lanes). @WTOPtraffic @DildineWTOP @ARLnowDOTcom @VaDOTNOVA @VSPPIO #traffic #Drivers #395cam #STATcam pic.twitter.com/EtvhL7ZRh4— Dave Statter (@STATter911) December 10, 2021

I agree, if there were to be a renumbering I would pick option 1 also, as it extends I-64 to Virginia Beach along the most logical existing route. (The most confusing part of the existing numbering, at least for those who are not from the area, is how I-64 East ends facing west, and I'm aware that I-64 is posted without east/west directions south of I-264, but that is not an ideal solution.)
