STAUNTON –  (6:40 p.m.) All Intestate 81 northbound lanes have reopened in Frederick County.  Earlier this afternoon a tractor-trailer crash caused both northbound lanes to be closed at mile marker 302.

This location is between exit 300 at the Interstate 66 interchange and exit 302 at Route 627 in Middletown.

Some delays are still at the scene as traffic back-ups clear out of the area.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511.  Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.  For other assistance call the VDOT Customer Service Center, available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week.  Citizens can dial 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623) from anywhere in the state to report road hazards, ask transportation questions, or get information related to Virginia’s roads.
