VDOT: Exit 150 Improvement Project "Pardon Our Dust" Meeting

5/18/2015

The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a “Pardon Our Dust” public information meeting as construction on the project is scheduled to begin.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 28 at Lord Botetourt High School from 5 to 7 p.m.  There will be no formal presentation given, but VDOT representatives and representatives from the project contractor, Branch Highways, will be present to answer questions about the project, potential traffic impacts and the schedule of construction in an open house format throughout the evening.

The operational improvements at exit 150 will include relocating the on-ramp from northbound Route 220 onto northbound I-81 to a new location, constructing a roundabout at the exit 150B/Route 11 intersection, installing a raised median on Route 11 and building a new road to extend from Route 11 to Route 220 Alternate. Information about the project can be found on VDOT’s website at http://www.virginiadot.org/I81Exit150project.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact VDOT at 540-387-5353, 800-367-7623 or TTY/TDD 711.
