Interstate 81

The Network opposes plans for an $11.4 billion widening of I-81 to eight or more lanes, funded by tolls. We support affordable, lower-impact improvements, within the existing roadway, to address safety and congestion problems.

SVN and its partners have coordinated a multi-faceted campaign to block a costly and destructive plan to widen I-81 to eight or more lanes, paid for by tolls on local drivers. We advocate a mix of transportation options to address safety and congestion issues more quickly, efficiently and affordably.
