To reach the campus from Interstate 81 (southbound and northbound):

  1. From Interstate 81, take Exit 118 to reach the exit ramps for all three of the exits at this location. There is only one exit ramp serving the exits; missing the ramp means a trip north to Exit 128 or south to Exit 114 to turn around.
  2. Take Exit 118B onto U.S. 460 West. This exit connects directly to the Christiansburg Bypass. Follow the signs for Blacksburg/Virginia Tech. The U.S. 460 bypass between Blacksburg and Christiansburg is a limited-access highway from 1-81 to the campus entrance at Southgate Drive.
  3. Watch signs carefully for routes and directions. From the bypass, Bus. U.S. 460 — South Main Street, exits to the right (take South Main Street as one route to reach downtown Blacksburg).
