Eastbound on the overlap of U.S. 13 north with U.S. 58 & 460 eastbound at the Suffolk and Chesapeake city line. The three highways cosign between the Suffolk city center eastward to Interstate 664. The sign bridge displayed here partitions the three eastbound lanes into the counterparts of U.S. 58 & 460 Alternate eastbound and U.S. 13 northbound & U.S. 460 eastbound. Contrary to the signage, U.S. 13 and U.S. 460 actually follow U.S. 58 through the interchange with Interstate 664, then they split off of U.S. 58 at the intersection with Joliff Rd east of the interchange. The connection leads something to be desired and may be the reasoning for alluding to U.S. 13 & 460 following the Interstate 264 eastbound ramp.2 Photo taken 12/17/01. Second photo taken 05/01/01.
