It's Time to Fix I-81
If we're going to fix I-81, it's up to you.

Send a message to elected leaders now. 
 
Interstate 81 is dangerous and packed with way more vehicles and trucks than it can handle. It's the longest highway in Virginia, yet it has been ignored for years as the problems continue to get worse. As I-81 gets more congested, outdated and unsafe, it costs people their lives and keeps goods from getting where they need to go. We shouldn't stand for it anymore.
  • There are thousands of crashes on I-81 every year.
  • 26% of all crashes involve trucks.
  • Highway traffic volume is 50% more than what it was built for.
We depend on I-81 each day to deliver goods from Virginia's ports to the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Gulf Coast and Texas. And in Virginia alone, it connects more than 30 colleges and universities, 21 cities and 13 counties. Despite all this, the highway has been neglected by our elected leaders. In 2018, the General Assembly passed a bill that calls for a study of financing options for improvements to I-81. After the study is complete, there can be no more excuses for inaction.

Tell legislators they must act now to fix I-81. It's time.
