PAVEMENT TESTING RESCHEDULED ON I-81 AND I-64 IN ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY

STAUNTON – Pavement testing scheduled for June 23 is delayed due to weather. The new time is 8 p.m. Monday, June 27, until 7 a.m. the following morning. This work will require mobile left-lane closures on northbound Interstate 81 in Rockbridge County.  These operations are scheduled to take place between mile marker 185 and 195, and will also require a short detour for eastbound I-64 traffic in the Lexington area. 

For about four hours on Monday night into early Tuesday morning, eastbound I-64 drivers headed northbound on I-81 will enter southbound I-81 to exit 188A (Route 60/Buena Vista). Drivers will then use the off- and on-ramps at this exit to take I-81 northbound. Signs and variable message boards will direct motorists on the detour route. 

All work is weather permitting.
