The Chesapeake Expressway begins, technically, at the border of Virginia and North Carolina. However, the only portion of the roadway that is actually tolled is between Gallbush Road and Hillcrest Parkway. The freeway portion of the roadway begins north of Gallbush Road, at mile marker 1.8.
Between Gallbush Road and the North Carolina border, the roadway has stop lights at key intersections.
The roadway is a critical connector between the Outer Banks and Norfolk, Virginia, although it is operated by the City of Chesapeake.
The Chesapeake Expressway overlaps Virginia State Highway 168, and connects at the south end to North Carolina State Highway 168. At the north end, the Chesapeake Expressway connects with U.S. 17 and Interstate 64, at which point the roadway becomes I-464 as it continues north into Norfolk.
