What's Being Done?
VDOT’s 2017-2022 Six-Year Improvement Plan includes full-funding by the City of Bristol to widen a small section of Route 11 (Lee Highway) between exit 5 and The Falls Development entrance, as well as improve capacity of the I-81 southbound on and off ramps. The $5.85 million project is currently being designed. Right of way is anticipated to begin in 2018, followed by construction in 2020.
