Overnight I-81 Lane Closures Set to Begin This Week

24 June 2019 Winchester Frederick County News


The Virginia Department of Transportation is informing the public that overnight lane closures on Interstate 81 will begin today (6/24/2019).

From 8 p.m. to 7 a.m., both northbound and southbound I-81 will experience a left-lane closure between mile markers 311.9 and 313.1 in Frederick County. The lane closures will remain in place through Thursday (6/27/2019) during the same times, and will allow contractors to install concrete barriers on the left shoulder. Those barriers will remain in place through September of 2019, as construction work takes place on the bridge pier that will help connect Route 522 with Tevis Street in Winchester. During construction of the bridge pier, the speed limit on I-81 between mile marker 311.9 and 313.1 will be reduced to 60 miles an hour.
