Interstate 264 stretches 25.07 miles east from Bowers Hill and northwest Chesapeake to coastal Virginia Beach through Hampton Roads. The original 14 mile alignment travels through Portsmouth and Norfolk between I-64/664 and I-64 at the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway. Added in 1999, the easternmost 12 miles replaced Virginia State Route 44 along the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway.

Interstate 264 was completed in 1970 within the Hampton Roads Beltway. Until 1987, the Downtown Tunnel accommodated just two lanes of traffic through the tube opened in 1952. The Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway opened to traffic in 1967. Tolls were collected along the facility until 1995 when all construction related bonds were paid off.
