The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that Interstate 95 travelers in the Fredericksburg area can expect overnight delays from September 14 through 22 for lane closures and intermittent traffic stops needed to build a new overpass in Stafford County.

Construction crews will use a crane to lift bridge beams into position for a new overpass on Route 652 (Truslow Road) that spans I-95 at mile marker 134, just north of Exit 133 (Route 17).

The I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project is replacing the Truslow Road overpass to accommodate construction of two new reversible Express Lanes in the median.

The project is lengthening the two-lane overpass and will slightly widen it to have expanded road shoulders.

Truslow Road closed to through traffic for overpass construction on Jan. 27, 2020, and was estimated to reopen to traffic in fall 2020. The schedule has been extended, with the road now anticipated to open in winter 2020-early 2021.
