The I-81 Corridor Improvement Program consists of innovative, targeted improvements that will have a substantial effect on the safety and reliability of a critical portion of our nation's infrastructure.
Driver safety is our number one priority. This program will implement a series of improvements such as lane extensions to reduce the rate and frequency of crashes along the corridor.
The program improvements will reduce congestion by adding capacity in targeted areas of the corridor and improving speed of incident clearance to help limit travel delays and improve reliability.
I-81 is the main corridor and key economic artery of western Virginia. These improvements will ensure that goods and services critical to our economy moves safely and efficiently through the region.
