Lane Shifts and Closures Through December on I-95 Near Triangle

by | Oct 21, 2015 | News

Lane shifts and closures on I-95 South in Prince William County will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, for emergency groundwater seepage repairs.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin shifting all lanes to the left on a half-mile stretch of I-95 South in Prince William County, from just south of the truck scales to Exit 152 (Route 234).

This lane shift will be in place for about two and a half months while VDOT installs a drainage system to drain groundwater seeping from springs underneath the pavement. If not repaired immediately, the water seepage will be a safety issue for the traveling public during the upcoming cold weather.

Throughout this work, drivers should expect single lane closures Monday through Thursday from about 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Friday until 11 a.m., as well as multiple lane closures during weekday overnight hours from 9:30 p.m. until about 6 a.m. on this stretch of I-95 South.

Trucks exiting from the truck scales are advised to expect a shorter merge area.

All work is weather dependent.

VDOT anticipates completing this emergency repair before the end 2015.
