Interstate 77 northbound ramp extension

Project at a Glance


Gene Holley, PMP

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.
