Design is underway for a project to widen Interstate 81 to three lanes southbound between mile markers 8.1 and 9.7 and extension of the northbound merge lane in Washington County. A public meeting regarding the $33 million project is anticipated for fall 2021.

VDOT held an in-person design public meeting with a virtual option in October 2021.


Widening southbound I-81 between exits 10 and 7 will improve traffic flow and relieve congestion.
