HAMPTON, Va. - The Mallory Street bridge demolition has been delayed, VDOT announced Thursday.

Hampton City officials previously said demolition would begin Tuesday night on the side of the Mallory Street bridge closest to the VA Medical Center, causing a nightly detour for Interstate 64 eastbound vehicles.

On Thursday VDOT said crews have shifted traffic to the north side of the bridge in preparation for the controlled demolition of the south portion of the bridge. While anticipated detours for this construction activity were initially scheduled to begin as early as this week, crews are still preparing for the demolition work.

Therefore, there are no active nightly detours planned this week on I-64 east at Mallory Street, they said.
