VDOT to Close Southbound I-81 Lane in Augusta Sunday

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia Department of Transportation plans to close a lane of southbound Interstate 81 in Augusta County Sunday to repair a small sinkhole.

Crews discovered the two-foot wide sinkhole next to the right shoulder of the interstate about one mile from the Raphine exit.

VDOT will close the right lane of I-81 starting at 7 a.m. Sunday to make those repairs. Work should finish by mid-afternoon, weather-permitting.
