The right lane of I-81 north between mile markers 138 and 140 in Roanoke County remains closed following issues with a paving project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
Traffic was backed up more than 4 miles as of 7:36 a.m., according to traffic camera footage on VDOT's website.
VDOT says there is no timetable for the lane to be reopened and advises drivers to seek other routes or expect delays.
The paving project had been scheduled to be completed overnight Tuesday with the lane reopening by Wednesday morning, but the contractor encountered a problem, VDOT said.
