(From left to right)

INTERSTATE 81 - EXIT 17: Be alert to nightly lane closures on Route 75 and Country Club Drive due to water line installation work as part of the I-81, Exit 17 improvement project. Beginning Dec. 27, Commerce Drive between Route 75 and Wonderland Drive will be closed indefinitely to begin utility construction before the new northbound on- and off-ramps can be constructed. Traffic wishing to access the businesses and residences along Commerce Drive will use Gravel Lake Road for access. The new connection between Gravel Lake Road and Commerce Drive will open the week of Dec. 20. The Exit 17 project includes improvements to the Exit 17 northbound on- and off-ramps, improvements to a segment of Route 75, reconstruction and relocation of Gravel Lake Road, lengthening the I-81 southbound on-ramp, and relocation of the frontage road located adjacent to the northbound Exit 17 off-ramp. The speed limit is 60 mph through the work zone. (Completion: Fall 2022)

INTERSTATE 81 - DECELERATION LANE, EXIT 19: Be alert to narrow shoulders at Exit 19 northbound in the Abingdon area as crews improve the deceleration lane on I-81. (Completion: Spring 2022)

Route 710 (Sweet Hollow Road): Due to the replacement of three metal pipes with concrete pipes and headwalls, the Route 710 (Sweet Hollow Road) bridge in Washington County is closed. The project is located 0.4-mile from Route 711 and just under two miles from the Tennessee state line. Once this pipe replacement is complete, crews will move north to perform a similar project on Route 710 about 1.10 miles from Route 711. Each project will take approximately three weeks. (Completion: Dec. 30)

Route 58 widening: The project to widen Route 58 near Damascus in Washington County is underway. Be alert to construction teams mobilizing in the area in the coming weeks. (Completion: May 2024)
