In Design: Interstate 81 Exit 17 Interchange Improvements (Washington County)
The proposed Interstate 81 Exit 17 improvement project in the Abingdon area of Washington County includes improvements to the Exit 17 northbound on and off ramps, improvements to a segment of Route 75, reconstruction and relocation of Gravel Lake Road, and relocation of the frontage road located adjacent to the northbound exit 17 off ramp (Commerce Drive).
The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow on Route 75 beneath I-81 and to improve safety on I-81 by giving more space for traffic to queue on the northbound off ramp.
