[ARCHIVED] ANOTHER UPDATE: Traffic Alert: Detour Scheduled for NB I-81 for Bridge Repairs in Botetourt County



Due to the snow that occurred on Tuesday night, Jan. 28, this work was rescheduled for tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 29 and Sunday, Feb. 2. The detour will begin at 10 p.m. each night and will be complete by 6 a.m. the following morning.

This work is weather dependent.

A detour will be in place on northbound Interstate 81 for repairs to the northbound bridge over Route 606 (Blue Ridge Turnpike). Traffic will exit the interstate at mile marker 156 and return to northbound I-81 at exit 162.

The detour will be in place beginning at 10 p.m. both nights and will reopen by 6 a.m. the following morning. The detour is necessary to allow the contractor to raise the bridge’s riding surface slightly to make repairs.

Northbound traffic will exit I-81 at mile marker 156 onto Route 640 (Brughs Mill Road) to northbound Route 11 (Lee Highway) and will return to northbound I-81 at exit 162. Flaggers will control traffic on the detour route.
