I-81 lane closures begin April 29

As part of the Interstate 81 In-Place Pavement Recycling Project, there will be frequent southbound single lane traffic from April 29 to May 5. The I-81 In-Place Pavement Recycling Project is located in the I-81 southbound lanes, south of Staunton near exit 217 at Route 654 in the Mint Spring area and exit 213 at Route 11 in the Greenville area.

From April 25 at 9 p.m. to May 5 at 7 a.m. I-81 southbound between exit 217 and exit 213 will have single-lane traffic 24-hours a day. The right lane will be closed.

Drivers of tractor trailer trucks should use the left lane and drivers of passenger vehicles are requested to use the primary detour: Traffic will leave I-81 southbound at exit 217 onto Route 654 (White Hill Road) westbound to Route 11 (Lee Jackson Highway). Motorists will turn left onto Route 11 southbound and re-enter I-81 at exit 213.

Route 800 (Folly Mills Station Road/Springfield Lane), which is just off of Route 654 and Route 11 will be closed at its connections with Route 654. Only the Route 11 intersections will be open for Route 800 traffic during the 24 hour-a-day I-81 lane closure period.

There will be three more planned block closures between April 22 and June 9. A single closure block is scheduled to begin on Fridays at 9 p.m. and ends the following Thursday at 7 a.m. During the block closures I-81 southbound will be reduced to one lane in the work zone.

The next 24-hour block closure is scheduled for May 6 at 9 p.m. to May 12 at 7 a.m. For a complete closure listing please visit www.VirginiaI-81Pave.org for project information.

All work is weather permitting. If crews complete their work early, lanes may reopen sooner than stated.
