TRAFFIC ALERT: EXIT 150B ON NORTHBOUND INTERSTATE 81 TO CLOSE IN BOTETOURT COUNTY

SALEM – As part of the ongoing construction project at Interstate 81’s exit 150, the existing bridge over the exit 150B off ramp, has been scheduled to be removed. This bridge was formerly part of the I-81 northbound on-ramp with former access from Route 220 southbound.

Starting Sunday, February 11, work to remove the existing bridge will begin requiring closure of the exit 150B off ramp. The off ramp will be closed from Sunday to Thursday, 12 a.m. to 5 a.m.

Traffic needing access to Route 220 north will need to take exit 150A to Gateway Crossing, through the roundabout to Route 11 south and turn right at the light of the intersection of Route 11 and Route 220. All other drivers can access all other routes using exit 150A. Message boards will be in place to alert drivers.

This work is estimated to be completed by Friday, March 2.
