Once you cross the M&M I-664 South, you have three options towards the Beach, Chesapeake, and Norfolk. Keep in mind all of these routes take you across a major Bridge or Tunnel: 

1) Western Freeway towards Norfolk, through the Midtown Tunnel, then follow Brambleton to 264 East.

2) 264 East up through the Downtown Tunnel and over the Berkley Bridge continuing to the Beach 

3) 664 South to 64 West, over the High Rise Bridge and then 264 East towards Virginia Beach

Everything will reopen on Monday morning by 5:00 a.m.
