We will be coming through from Willliamsburg to Virginia Beach on I-64/264 on a Thursday evening in two weeks. We are coming from Charlottesville down but we are going to stop in Williamsburg for dinner to wait out Hampton Roads/Newport News traffic. We are estimating that we would get to Williamsburg around 4pm. How late should we wait to leave Williamsburg to get to Virginia Beach boardwalk and avoid rush hour traffic? What is the average rush hour time frame in Newport News/Hampton Roads all the way to Virginia Beach?
Unless there is an alternate route to get from Williamsburg to the beach.
