STAUNTON – (12:30 p.m.) All northbound lanes of Interstate 81 have reopened in Rockbridge County following an overnight tractor trailer crash near mile marker 196.6. One of the trucks involved in the crash was hauling cooking oil, and the resulting spill required extensive cleanup of the travel lanes.
