EVACUATION PLAN Know where you will go! Know how you will get there! Designate a family POC? Keep a full gas tank! Keep cash? (Do not rely on ATMs) What about pets?
PHASE 1 (24 to 14 hours prior to storms arrival. PHASE 2 (14 hours prior to storms arrival) Individuals residing north of RT 264 will use I-64W towards Richmond. Individuals residing south of RT 264 and along the Oceanfront will use I-64 towards Suffolk. Green lines indicate authorized evacuation routes
The midtown tunnel and Jamestown-Scotland Ferry will close when an approaching tropical storm or hurricane produces winds of 39mph that are forecast to intensify. The HRBT, MMBT, James River Bridge, Downtown Tunnel, Coleman Bridge and the High Rise Bridge will close when an approaching tropical storm or hurricane produces 45mph winds that are forecast to intensify. Under no circumstances is the CBBT to be considered an evacuation route
I-64 Westbound traffic traveling from Norfolk and VA Beach will shift onto what are normally the eastbound lanes of I-64 just before the HRBT in Norfolk, near Willoughby Spit. Motorists will continue traveling on the eastbound lanes until they reach I-295 in Richmond. Persons living on the Hampton side of the HRBT will use the normal I-64 Westbound lanes. Exit and entrances will be normal with the exception of some entrance ramps may be closed to smooth traffic flow. No traffic will be allowed to travel East on the interstate during a reversal. All Eastbound lanes and ramps between Norfolk and Richmond will be closed via gates, police and VDOT. There will be 2 possible exits for traffic traveling on the reversed lanes: Exit 234 for gas, lodging and hospital. Exit 205 for gas and food. A comfort station on I-64 near Jefferson Ave and the rest areas in Kent County will also be open.
VDOT Safety Service Patrols will provide basic motorists assistance on the road or at the rest areas and comfort station. Wreckers to be on standby along I-64 to move disabled cars and trucks out of travel lanes Vans will shuttle motorists whose vehicles become disabled to shelter locations Drinking water will be available at the New Kent safety rest areas, at the Jefferson Avenue comfort station and at the west Suffolk weigh station on Route 58.
I-295 INTERCHANGE Motorists on I-64 West lanes must exit and use I-295 North or I-295 South Motorists on I-64 reversed lanes will cross over to I-64 West lanes and continue to the I-95 interchanges In addition to hurricanes, I-64 might be reversed for other emergencies at the discretion of the governor VDOT has an agreement with the Richmond Metropolitan Convention and Visitor's Bureau to encourage the use of their toll-free number during evacuation.
