Detour impacts drivers on Interstate 81, Interstate 64 in Rockbridge County


interstate 64VDOT is performing bridge work on the Interstate 64 westbound bridge over Route 763 (Lincoln Road) and Mill Creek in Rockbridge County. This location is on I-64 between exit 56 at Interstate 81 and exit 55 at Route 11 in Lexington.

Beginning March 20 at 8 p.m. crews will begin steel beam welding operations, which helps to maintain the bridge’s service life. The welding work requires a 24 hour-a-day total bridge closure. Because of this work I-81 exit 191 westbound at I-64 will be closed.

Northbound and southbound traffic on I-81 headed westbound on I-64 will use I-81 exit 195 and take Route 11 southbound to the I-64 exit 55 interchange.  This detour will begin on March 20 at 8 p.m. and last approximately three to six days, depending on project progress.

All work is weather permitting.
