The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that during the overnight hours on Tuesday, January 19 and Wednesday, January 20 motorists will be restricted to one lane on Interstate 95 southbound at mile marker 131 located just north of Exit 130 (Route 3) in Fredericksburg.
Beginning at 9:30 p.m. each night one lane will be closed followed by a second lane at 10 p.m. All lanes will be open by 5 a.m.
In addition, the entrance and exit ramp to the Fredericksburg Safety Rest Area and Welcome Center located at mile marker 131 will be narrowed from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. The facility will remain open.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be installing a containment system under the Fall Hill Avenue bridge in preparation for the bridge demolition phase of the project. The containment system will shield the interstate from any loose debris during the demolition.
The old Fall Hill Avenue bridge will be demolished after traffic is switched to the new bridge. The traffic switch is expected to take place in February, weather permitting.
This work is in connection with the Fall Hill Avenue Widening and I-95 Bridge Replacement Project.
