All lanes are reopen after a crash temporarily closed part of Interstate 64 right where traffic merges from southbound Interstate 81 near Staunton, and all backups have cleared.


Drivers heading from Interstate 81 to eastbound Interstate 64 near Staunton should be prepared for delays Wednesday morning.

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), a crash at mile marker 87.6 of I-64 – just as southbound Interstate 81 traffic merges with eastbound Interstate 64 – has closed the eastbound left shoulder and left lane of I-64.

As of 11:35 a.m., no estimates were available on how far backups stretched from the scene.

Traffic cameras appeared to show a vehicle overturned in the ditch just off the left shoulder.
