I-81 Exit 235 and Route 256 Study (2022)

The Weyers Cave area has experienced an increase in traffic levels due to industrial, institutional, commercial, and residential development in the vicinity of the I-81 interchange at Route 256 (Exit 235). Exit 235 serves several regional generators including Blue Ridge Community College and the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport.

With Weyers Cave’s status as a Designated Growth Area, future traffic conditions are anticipated to present several challenges to both motorized and non-motorized travelers. The Exit 235 Small Area Study seeks to identify and evaluate solutions to address periodic congestion at the Exit 235 Interchange, anticipate long-term corridor needs and accommodate future growth.
