Proposed Needs

Highway Safety

Inadequate ramp lengths and merge areas, relatively close proximity of Exit 37 to the rest area, inadequate capacity / interchange configuration of Exit 37, and high truck traffic resulting in highway safety implications.


The existing mainline I-81 routinely experiences travel delay between Exit 14 and Exit 16, which contributes to operational and safety issues.

Land Use and Access

Beyond the existing industrial development in the area, additional commercial and residential development near Exits 14, 16, and 17 will increase traffic volumes at the interchanges.

Highway Infrastructure

The existing pavement and structures along several segments of existing I-81 corridor were constructed in the 1960s and are approaching the end of their serviceable life span. Gaps in ITS devices (DMS) were identified at Exit 16.
