CHESAPEAKE -- Three bridges will have closings this weekend that will affect the way you drive around Hampton Roads.  

The I-664 Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel will be closed northbound, towards Newport News, at 8:00 p.m. Friday and should reopen by 6:00 a.m. Monday. Crews will be doing tunnel joint and pavement repair.

In Chesapeake, the I-64 High Rise Bridge will be closed eastbound & one westbound lane will be shut down from 7:00 p.m. Friday to 5:00 a.m. Monday. Crews will finalize milling and repaving operations eastbound and the westbound closure is needed for placement of machinery during paving operations.

The Centerville Turnpike Bridge will be closed from 7:00 p.m. Saturday to 7:00 p.m. Sunday. City of Chesapeake officials say crews will be replacing a swing cable and making other repairs. A detour via Route 168 will be posted.

VDOT says drivers should watch out for closures at crossings in Hampton Roads each weekend until Memorial Day.
