The 2013 Hampton Roads Bad Signage & Williamsburg Trip, Part 1: To The Ocean

For my last trip of 2013, I decided to combine my annual Williamsburg trip with a trip to the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Hampton Roads is, as you all know, the terrible signage capital of the world. Since I've covered most of the way down (and the sun was in my face), I started taking pictures in Suffolk on US 13/58/460.

Now on I-264, which I reached via I-664 southbound.

The Des Moines Avenue exit was closed.

Descending to VA 141 southbound to clinch it.

To get back to I-264 from VA 141's south end, I took US 17 northbound to VA 337 eastbound, back to VA 141.

That I-264 shield...ew.

Back on the interstate, oceanfront bound.

I hadn't driven this far before on I-264.

First Colonial Road was once VA 408. It was never posted from I-264 {or its tolled predecessor, VA 44) but it was posted from VA 279 and, I believe, at least one of the US 58s.

Birdneck Road is the last exit on I-264.

I-264 ends to become 21st Street eastbound and 22nd Street westbound.

  1. There were circle 408 trailblazers on westbound US 58/Laskin Rd when I was first stationed in Norfolk (2001-05). They were gone by 2012.
