High Rise Bridge is a bascule drawbridge which carries a portion of the Hampton Roads Beltway designated as Interstate 64 across the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River in Chesapeake, Virginia.

The twin spans of concrete and steel were completed in 1972, and are owned by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

On Wednesday November 10, 2010 after the 2:30 opening the bridge was stuck in the up position causing widespread traffic delays.
