It’s time once again for tide gate testing at the HRBT, and both directions will close on I-64. The closures will happen for one hour in each direction - but separately, overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning.

Here are the scheduled time frames:

Eastbound- 2 a.m. to 3 a.m.

Westbound- 3 a.m. to 4 a.m.

During the closures, VDOT advises heading over to I-664. The Monitor Merrimac Bridge Tunnel will be your best alternate, helping you avoid all the traffic held up at HRBT.
