Interstate 81 Lane Closures - Exit 158

Blue background with traffic alert text

Lane closures on southbound Interstate 81 at two locations are expected to create significant delays for drivers during the week starting Dec. 5. The work is weather dependent. Motorists should pay attention to message boards, expect delays and consider alternate routes. 

Drivers can expect delays is in Botetourt County on southbound I-81, north of Roanoke, at mile maker 158, due to paving the ramps and the shoulder at the Troutville Rest Area. A 24-hour right lane closure is tentatively scheduled on Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 6 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and a 12-hour right lane closure is expected to be in place on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. 

The rest area has been closed since May for a project to extend the ramps. The contractor is working to complete the remaining paving ahead of winter, so that the rest area can reopen before spring. If weather permits, the rest area should reopen by late December. Please use caution in these areas.

ALTERNATE ROUTE: Travelers on southbound I-81, north of Lexington, who are headed to destinations south of Roanoke can consider rerouting to use Interstate 64 west to Interstate 77 south. To get updates on these lane closures, visit www.511Virginia.org.
