Recently Completed: Interstate 81 Exit 14 Interchange Improvements (Washington County)
Cost and schedule ►
Interstate 81 exit 14 reconstruction was completed in late October 2018.
The project included: reconstruction of I-81 before and after the interchange, replacement of the I-81 bridges over Route 647 (Old Jonesboro Road), reconstruction of the on and off ramps at Exit 14, reconstruction of Jonesboro Road to provide two through lanes in each direction with a raised median and dual left turn lanes for the I-81 northbound entrance ramp, installation of two traffic signals where I-81 ramps intersect with Jonesboro Road, and construction of a retaining wall between I-81 and a portion of Dennison Drive.
Project improves safety, better accommodates traffic volumes and replaces outdated I-81 bridges at the exit.
