​VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – June 28, 2017 - To facilitate traffic and accommodate the larger-than-normal crowds entering the resort area for the 4th of July, traffic on I-264 eastbound will be diverted at Parks Avenue and redirected westbound on I-264 beginning at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4 until 1 a.m., on Wednesday, July 5, or until traffic is flowing safely. 

During this traffic diversion, the eastbound exit for S. Birdneck and the westbound exit for First Colonial will be closed. Other routes into the resort area will remain open: General Booth Blvd., Virginia Beach Blvd, Laskin Road and Shore Drive. 

"We need the public's help to make sure employees, guests or other visitors are aware of these traffic changes," said Deputy City Manager Steve Cover. "For everyone's safety, ​we're encouraging people to arrive early and enjoy all of the amenities at the oceanfront and then be prepared for delays leaving the area." 

Police will monitor traffic to ensure emergency vehicles can move quickly and safely respond to calls for service.
