In Design: Interstate 81 Exit 19 Ramp Improvements
The proposed Interstate 81 Exit 19 Interchange project includes improvements to the exit 19 on and off ramps; realign a portion of Empire Drive; add traffic signals at two locations; improve how traffic merges onto southbound I-81; add turn lanes to Route 11 at the northbound off ramp; and widen a curve along the southbound off ramp.
The project will improve traffic flow and safety at one of southwestern Virginia’s busiest interchanges.
