STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation has updated the schedule of interchange ramp closures for eastbound Interstate 64 exit 14 in the city of Covington. The changes also include brief road closures for South Durant Road near the I-64 interchange. The ramp and road closures are now set for March 28-31, 2020.

These closures allow utility crews to pull power lines over the affected roadways. The work is scheduled as follows:

  • Saturday and Sunday, March 28-29, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Monday and Tuesday, March 30-31, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

During those times, the eastbound I-64 on- and off-ramps at exit 14 will be closed. Detour routes will assist motorists who need to get to or from eastbound I-64. Closures on South Durant Road will be intermittent and are expected to last for up to 10 minutes at a time.
