NORFOLK, Va. – An emergency closure of an on-ramp on I-64 has been implemented.

Crews with the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Expansion Project have implemented an emergency, full closure, and detour of the I-64 East on-ramp from 4th View Street. It began Tuesday at 12:30 p.m.

They say a sinkhole caused the closure, however, VDOT says it was not a naturally occurring sinkhole.

According to the preliminary assessment, it indicates it was settlement caused by construction activities in the vicinity of the ramp.

Crews are working to remedy the issue and will open the roadway as soon as the work is complete.
