Overnight delays expected on I-95 all week with full traffic stops near Fredericksburg
VDOT is advising Interstate 95 travelers to expect overnight delays this week with ongoing construction for the Improve 95 program and maintenance activities along the corridor in the Fredericksburg area.
VDOT encourages drivers with destinations outside the Fredericksburg area to consider alternate routes starting Sunday through early Friday, July 15 to avoid major delays.
I-95 northbound and southbound will be reduced to one lane overnight at various points between exit 140 (Courthouse Road) in Stafford County to exit 110 (Ladysmith) in Caroline County for multiple work zones.
The I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing Project team will also need to close the on-ramp at the exit 133 (Route 17) interchange in Stafford County to shift barrier wall.
Beginning early Monday the team will close the I-95 northbound on-ramp from Route 17 northbound at midnight until 3 a.m. A detour will allow drivers to access I-95 northbound from Route 17 southbound.
