NORFOLK-People who drive on the Interstate between Norfolk and Va. Beach should have a smoother ride.
VDOT crews weremilling and paving on Interstate 64 and Interstate 264 over the weekend and work is expected to continue weekends until the work is complete, expected to be in mid-November.
This comes after months of complaints by drivers who have dodged potholes on the busy stretch of highway.
VDOT took over management of daily maintenance on I-64 and I-264 after its contract with TME ran out in May. Both VDOT and that company had come under fire after about a dozen cars hit potholes in February that had been temporarily patched. Rainy weather washed away the work, leaving gaping holes in the road that drivers couldn't avoid.
