TRAFFIC ALERT: LANE CLOSURE FOR INTERSTATE 81 BRIDGE WORK IN BOTETOURT COUNTY EXTENDED

SALEM – The right lane closure on northbound Interstate 81 in Botetourt County at mile marker between mile markers 163 and 165 for work on the bridge over Route 625 (Mount Joy Road) has been extended until later this evening. 

A bridge contractor put in the right lane closure around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11 and had anticipated removing it by 10 a.m. today. 

However, an equipment breakdown has delayed completion of the work and will require the right lane closure to remain in place until sometime around 6 p.m. today.  Drivers should expect delays.
