What's Being Done

Design work is underway by VDOT and the City of Bristol for projects that will ultimately widen Route 11 (Lee Highway) from the intersection of Route 11 and Old Airport Road in the City of Bristol to Exit 10 in Washington County.  

The City of Bristol's portion begins at the new bridges over Beaver Creek to the North Corporate limits of Bristol.    

VDOT's project begins at the intersection of Mount Vernon Drive and extends two mile to Route F310 at the Interstate Exit 10 area.  


A design public hearing for the project was held April 19, 2012.

Right of way and construction for VDOT's segment is based on future funding.  



In addition to providing access to many subdivisions and businesses, this section of Route 11 – Lee Highway serves as a main route between Bristol and Abingdon and an alternative route to Interstate 81. Due to commercial and retail development in the area, traffic on this section of Route 11 is expected to double by the year 2025.

These proposed improvements will provide a modern facility that can accommodate vehicle, bike and pedestrian traffic efficiently and safely.
