PAVEMENT WORK RESCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY NIGHT ON I-81 AND I-64 IN ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY

STAUNTON – Pavement testing expected to take place tonight in Rockbridge County has been postponed due to weather. The new schedule is 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, until 7 a.m. the following morning. The testing requires mobile left-lane closures on northbound Interstate 81 from mile marker 185 to 195. This work also requires a short detour for eastbound I-64 traffic near Lexington.

For about four hours on Tuesday night into early Wednesday 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.
