Interstate 77 northbound ramp extension
Project at a Glance

What's being done
Preliminary engineering is underway for extension of the Interstate 77 north ramp that leads to Interstate 81 south/Interstate 77 north in Wythe County.
The $10 million project is currently fully funded in VDOT's Six-Year Improvement Plan.
Interstate 77 is a heavily traveled corridor, especially in the summer months. Currently, the ramp filters two lanes of traffic wanting to access Interstate 81 south/Interstate 77 north down to one lane prior to accessing the I-77/I-81 overlap. The goal of the ramp extension is to provide two dedicated lanes to access the overlap.
