Another Night of Lane Closures on I-95 in Fredericksburg

by | Aug 26, 2015 | News

Southbound Interstate 95 traffic at Fredericksburg will be stopped intermittently overnight August 26, 2015, into the early morning hours of August 27 so concrete beams can be lifted over all travel lanes for construction of a new overpass at Fall Hill Avenue.

I-95 travelers are advised to use Route 1. Message boards on I-95 will provide advance notice of lane closures and detour routes.

The Fall Hill Avenue overpass is located at mile marker 131, just south of the Rappahannock River bridges and Safety Rest Area. It is located between I-95 exit 130/Route 3 and exit 133/Route 17.
A single lane of I-95 southbound will close at the overpass at 9:30 p.m. Two southbound lanes will close at 10 p.m.

Between midnight and 3 a.m. all traffic will be stopped four times so workers can lift beams over the travel lanes. Each traffic stop will last approximately 15 minutes. After each closure, the waiting queue of vehicles will be cleared from the scene.

All southbound lanes will re-open to traffic by 5 a.m. Thursday.

Virginia State Police are assisting with traffic control in the work zone.

Additional lanes closures have been scheduled on I-95 this week for beam lifts at the Fall Hill Avenue overpass. View the full work zone schedule for this week at Fredericksburg Region Traffic Hot Spots August 23 – 29.
