Sierra Jenkins, The Virginian-Pilot

A new ramp to Interstate 264 will replace the existing one at Newtown Road on Wednesday.

Drivers will be redirected to a roundabout on Greenwich Road as early as 7 p.m., according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The new traffic pattern will change how drivers get on eastbound lanes of the interstate, the department said.

The old ramp will be destroyed and turned into a storm water management basin.
