Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

VDOT is entering the right of way acquisition phase in winter 2023 for a project to widen Interstate 81 to three lanes southbound between mile markers 8.1 and 9.7 (Washington County) and extend the northbound merge lane approximately one mile. An in-person public meeting for the project was held in October 2021.


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