All lanes of traffic are now open on I-81 at the site of yesterday's deadly accident.
But V-DOT WILL close one northbound lane again today, from 9 a-m to 3 p-m, as cleanup continues.
Then tomorrow, the lane will be closed once again while crews replace the guardrail at the site.

Montgomery County supervisors have approved a school board plan to build a new high school.
The move will solve overcrowding problems now, and in the future.
The next step is money... The School Board and supervisors need to decide exactly how much they want to spend, and how to spend it...

And agents are meeting new challenges as they follow up to the big moonshine still bust from last week.
They couldn't blow up eight "blackpot" stills, not when they're INSIDE a big garage.
So the A-T-F hired a back-hoe operator and dump truck driver to haul them away.
