Lane Closures to Occur for I-81 Widening Project


BURLINGTON – The West Virginia Division of Highways advises motorists that nighttime lane closures will occur on Interstate 81 beginning next week.

 Lane closures will be located between West Virginia Exit 23 (Marlowe) and Maryland Exit 1 (Williamsport) and will be in place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights.  Work will begin Monday night, March 27, and will continue for about 8 weeks until lanes are shifted and temporary barrier wall installation is complete.  The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph through this area until the project is complete.

This night work is necessary to begin the widening of Interstate 81 in West Virginia.  Minor delays should be expected.
