Best route of of town heading north

After our upcoming visit to Asheville, we're headed north towards Harrionsburg, north on Rte. 81.

Which is best, head up 26N, and catch 81 there,

or take 40E , then 77N to 81?

Just curious which is a quicker, less traffic way to go.

Cant say which is less traffic but map quest says 5 hours on the I-26 / I-81 route and over 6 hours taking I-77. The Road Trips forum as suggested is a good place to post if you want suggestions for stops along the way and they may have current construction / traffic info too.
