TRAFFIC ALERT: OVERNIGHT INTERSTATE 81 DETOUR IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY TO IMPACT MORNING COMMUTE


SALEM – The detour currently in place on southbound Interstate 81 as part of the truck climbing lane project in Montgomery County will remain in place until at least 8 a.m. The detour was expected to be removed by 6 a.m., but the line painting as part of the work took longer to complete than anticipated.

Southbound Interstate 81 traffic is being routed onto Route 11/460 at exit 132 (Dixie Caverns) and back onto I-81 at exit 118 (Christiansburg).

For updates on this detour, visit 511Virginia.org.
