I-81 crack update - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

I-81 crack update

Posted: Updated:

VDOT says Interstate 81 southbound over Christiansburg Mountain will stay open during the labor day travel holiday, barring unforeseen problems.

The agency re-opened the detour at Dixie Caverns Thursday, after crews had removed enough debris from blasting to shore-up a 120-foot long crack on the mountain.

The contractor placed log trucks in-between the highway and the slope for additional protection from potential falling debris.

VDOT says additional blasting may take place in the next few weeks.
