These improvements include, but are not limited to, the reconstruction and widening of I-81 to make 3 lanes in each direction; replacement construction of 8 bridges; and the elimination of the I-81 NB left-hand exit to Route 309NB. The P3 agreement will also include the responsibility for maintenance of structural components for both bridges and pavement methods is possible.
