I-95 Overnight Lane Closures August 25, 26 in Fredericksburg

by | Aug 26, 2015 | News

I-95 southbound lanes in Fredericksburg will be closed intermittently between 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25, through 5 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26, for Fall Hill Avenue bridge construction. I-95 travelers are advised to use Route 1.

The Fall Hill Avenue overpass is located between I-95 exit 130/Route 3 and exit 133/Route 17 — just south of the Rappahannock River bridges and the Virginia Safety Rest Area.

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 for approximately 15 minutes each, so workers can lift beams over the travel lanes. After each closure, the waiting queue of vehicles will be cleared from the scene.

All southbound lanes will be open to traffic by 5 a.m. This same delay will occur on August 27 and August 31 on I-95 northbound.

Message boards on I-95 will provide advance notice of lane closures and detour routes. Virginia State Police are assisting with traffic control in the work zone.
