The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that Interstate 95 travelers should plan ahead for significant delays in Stafford County on several evenings in late August near Exit 140 (Courthouse Road).

I-95 traffic will be intermittently stopped overnight between midnight and 3 a.m. so construction crews can lift bridge beams into place for new interstate overpasses at Courthouse Road. Traffic will be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time for motorist safety when beams are lifted into place over the interstate’s travel lanes.

The bridges are under construction as part of a diverging diamond interchange at Exit 140 that will open to traffic by July 2020.

Message boards on I-95 will provide advance notice of lane closures and traffic stops. Traffic signals on Route 1 will be timed to accommodate increased traffic volumes in Stafford.

Beam lifts will affect I-95 travelers on the following evenings, weather permitting:

Monday, Aug. 20 – Wednesday, Aug. 22 (three consecutive nights of work)

  • Single lane closed at 9 p.m.
