SALEM – The right lane of northbound Interstate 81 in Roanoke County between mile markers 138 and 140 currently is closed.
Last night, a contractor with the Virginia Department of Transportation was paving on northbound I-81 with the nighttime work expected to be completed this morning. However, there is a problem with the new pavement that will have to be corrected before the lane can be reopened.
No estimated time for reopening the lane has been established at this time. Drivers should expect delays or seek alternate routes.
