Hampton Roads Traffic, Dozens of roads in Hampton Roads and the Roanoke and New River valleys are closed due to flooding.

In southeast Virginia, state transportation officials closed the Midtown Tunnel as a precaution and the southbound lane of the James River Bridge. All other bridges and tunnels are open, but officials are worried that high tide during rush hour could cause severe traffic problems Thursday afternoon.

Several access ramps onto Interstate 264 also were closed due to flooding in downtown Norfolk.

Flooding closed portions of U.S. 460 in Montgomery County and U.S. 220 in Franklin County. Dozens of secondary roads also were closed in the Roanoke and New River valleys.
