I-64 Westbound Exit Closed At Lexington Starting March 20


March 15 - The I-64 westbound stretch between I-81 and U.S. 11 will be closed for three to six days next week while repairs are made to the I-64 bridge over Lincoln Road and Mill Creek.

The Virginia Department of Transportation announced that beginning March 20 at 8 p.m. crews will begin steel beam welding operations, which helps to maintain the bridge’s service life. The welding work requires a 24 hour-a-day total bridge closure.

Because of this work I-81 exit 191 westbound at I-64 will be closed. Northbound and southbound traffic on I-81 headed westbound on I-64 will use I-81 exit 195 at Timber Ridge and take Route 11 southbound to the I-64 exit 55 interchange. 

All work is weather permitting. 

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at http://www.511Virginia.org.
