STAUNTON – Overnight ramp closures are scheduled for Monday, June 12, and Thursday, June 15, on northbound Interstate 81 at exit 307 (Stephens City/Route 277) in Frederick County. The ramp closures are due to paving operations on northbound I-81, which will have alternating lane closures during overnight hours from June 12 to June 23.

The northbound deceleration and acceleration ramps at exit 307 will be closed during overnight hours Monday and Thursday. The closures will be in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following mornings. During these hours, the following detours will be in place:

  • Northbound I-81 drivers needing to access Route 277 at Stephens City will use Exit 302 and follow Route 11 north to Route 277.
  • Route 277 drivers needing to access northbound I-81 will follow Route 11 north and then Route 37 south to the I-81 interchange at exit 310 (Kernstown).

Paving on northbound I-81 from mile marker 306.6 to 309.5 will primarily take place Monday through Thursday nights from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Motorists can expect left or right lane closures during these operations. Work may occur on Friday night from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. and Sunday night from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. as needed due to weather delays during the week.
