Notes

The eastern terminus of I-64 is not geographically the road's easternmost point. After crossing Hampton Roads and entering Norfolk, the road makes a wide loop toward Virginia Beach and through that city's northwest side. The road then curves toward its final destination on the west side of Chesapeake; by the time it enters Chesapeake, I-64 East actually runs westward to reach its terminus in an area known as Bower's Hill. At Bower's Hill, I-64 east ends. There, it joins both the western end of I-264, (which itself is both a bypass and spur of I-64), and the eastern terminus of I-664. Hampton Roads, from state map of pre-civil war Virginia circa 1858 Hampton Roads is the name of both a body of water and the land areas which surround it in southeastern Virginia in the United States. ...

Virginia Beach is an independent city located in the South Hampton Roads area in the Commonwealth of Virginia, on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. ... Chesapeake is an independent city located in the South Hampton Roads region of eastern Virginia in the United States. ...


This can of course, be very confusing, which was one of the factors which led to the designation of portions of I-64 (and all of I-664) as the Inner and Outer loops of the Hampton Roads Beltway.


Hampton Roads Beltway Designation

In combination, I-664 and I-64 essentially form a beltway in the Hampton Roads area. In January 1997, the 56-mile-long I-64/I-664 loop was designated and signed as the Hampton Roads Beltway. I-64 makes a huge arc around Norfolk and Portsmouth. The beltway has the clockwise direction (as looking down at a map of the area) signed as the Inner Loop, and the counter-clockwise direction signed as the Outer Loop. Hampton Roads Beltway is a loop of Interstate 64 and Interstate 664 highways which link the communities of the Virginia Peninsula and South Hampton Roads which surround the body of water known as Hampton Roads in the southeastern portion of Virginia in the United States. ...


Bridge-Tunnels across Hampton Roads

A major aspect of the Interstate Highway system in the Hampton Roads area are the 2 bridge-tunnels which each cross the harbor of Hampton Roads.


Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel

The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) is the 3.5-mile-long Hampton Roads crossing for Interstate 64. It is comprised of bridge trestles, manmade islands, and tunnels under the main shipping channels for Hampton Roads harbor. It connects the independent cities of Hampton and Norfolk. Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) is the 3. ... On September 17, 1861, Mrs. ... Nickname: Motto: Crescas (Latin for, Thou shalt grow. ...


The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel has two 12-foot-wide lanes each way, on separately built structures. The original two-lane structure replaced a ferry system and opened November 1, 1957 at a cost of $44 million dollars.


The construction of the original Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel was funded with toll revenue bonds. The bonds were paid off before the second portion was opened.


The construction of the $95 million second portion of the HRBT was funded as part of the Interstate Highway System as authorized under the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, as a portion of I-64, which means that it was funded with 90% FHWA funds from the Highway Trust Fund and 10% state DOT funds.


When the second span was opened to traffic in 1976, the tolls were removed.


The I-64 Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel has two manmade tunnel portal islands, at the place where Hampton Roads flows into Chesapeake Bay. The two manmade tunnel portal islands were widened to the west to accommodate the parallel bridge-tunnel project 1972-1976.


The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel south portal island actually does connect to some preexisting land, about 20 acres (80,000 m²) of land that is the site of Fort Wool, a fort during the Civil War, World War I and World War II, and a public park since 1970. Fort Wool is on a manmade island known as Rip-Raps, created beginning in 1818, which was pre-existing land when the HRBT south tunnel portal island was built 1954-1957, with a small earthen causeway that connects Fort Wool to the HRBT south portal island.


Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel

Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel (MMMBT) is the 4.6 mile-long Hampton Roads crossing for Interstate 664. It is comprised of bridge trestles, manmade islands, and tunnels under the main shipping channels for Hampton Roads harbor. It connects the independent cities of Newport News and Suffolk.

The MMMBT cost $400 million to build, and it includes a four-lane tunnel that is 4,800 feet long, two man-made portal islands, and 3.2 miles of twin trestle. It is named for the two ironclad warships which engaged in the famous Battle of Hampton Roads on March 8-9, 1862 during the US Civil War. The battle took place between the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia. The latter ship had been rebuilt from the wreck of the USS Merrimack. The site of the battle was within approximately 1 mile of the current bridge-tunnel's location. Ironclad warships, frequently shortened to just ironclads, were ships sheathed with thick iron plates for protection. ...
