Highways/Trucking

Interstate 64 and its Downtown link, Interstate 664, are the vital freeways that supercharge the Newport News motor transportation system. The interstates bring everything closer together and cut down transit time for your products. Interstate access in Newport News benefits your local, metropolitan and national transportation movements.

Locally, you can ride the interstates from one end of the City to the other and anywhere in between. Newport News Marine Terminal and Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport are both served by interchanges. So are the City’s industrial parks and Jefferson Lab, the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

Regionally, the interstate network connects the downtowns of all four major Hampton Roads cities: Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Hampton. The I–64/664/264 system also provides quick access from Newport News to Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk and the Williamsburg area. Two bridge–tunnels — one along I-64 and the other along I–664 — link Newport News to the Southside of Hampton Roads.

Nationally, I–64 is an integral part of the best highway system in the world. In 50 minutes you can be in Richmond traveling on I–95 to Washington, D.C., the northeast urban corridor, the industrial markets of the mid West or South (via I–85) toward Atlanta, Charlotte and Birmingham. I–64 continues west to I–81, which then links with I–40, a major east west trucking route. I–64 proceeds further west through West Virginia and Kentucky toward St. Louis.

Three U. S. highways serve Newport News. Route 17 connects with Fredericksburg, Virginia at I–95 and leads south along the coast through the Carolinas. Routes U. S. 258/58 reach west along the Virginia/North Carolina border with interchanges at I–95, I–85 and I–81. U. S. 60 leads north to Richmond and then through central Virginia.
