I-95 Northbound Lanes in Fredericksburg to Close 10 a.m. March 7

Virginia Department of Transportation

Update 3 p.m.
Northbound Interstate 95 at Fredericksburg has re-opened. Residual travel delays may exist as congestion clears northbound I-95, northbound Route 1 and Route 3 in the Fredericksburg area.

Emergency sign repair will close I-95 northbound for an estimated two hours starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 7, 2016. All northbound traffic will be detoured off the interstate at Exit 130/Route 3 at Fredericksburg.

An overhead sign was struck overnight by a vehicle, damaging the sign. The sign is located at mile marker 132, just north of the Rappahannock River Bridge.

Severe travel delays are expected for northbound interstate traffic, as well as traffic on primary roads and key connector roads in the Fredericksburg area. Motorists should plan to avoid the area if possible, or consider using Route 301 as an alternate route.

Detour Route
Once the repair is underway, all northbound I-95 traffic will be diverted at Route 3.

Motorists should follow the posted detour route from Route 3 eastbound to Route 1 northbound to Route 17 Business, where motorists can access the northbound on-ramp to I-95.
Commercial traffic and tractor-trailers can also detour to Route 1 northbound using Exit 126/Spotsylvania.

Ramps to northbound I-95 from Route 3 westbound and eastbound in Fredericksburg will also be closed to traffic during the emergency repair.
