The primary purpose of this project is to improve safety where Interstate 77 toward West Virginia meets Interstate 81 at Wytheville.
The project includes extending the off ramp from I-81 north onto I-77 north; extending the off ramp from I-77 south onto I-81 south; constructing a lane between southbound I-77 exit 41 (Peppers Ferry Road) and the I-81 southbound off ramp; and replacing the I-81 bridges over Peppers Ferry Road and the I-81 northbound bridge over I-77 north.
The purpose of the project is to improve safety as well as replace bridges that have reached their useful lifespan.
