Closing the local lanes will affect local travelers’ ability to merge onto the northbound I-95 through lanes north of exit 133 in Stafford.

When the local lanes are closed, there will be no access to the through lanes of I-95 northbound for any traveler entering I-95 northbound from Route 3 in the City of Fredericksburg. All local lanes traffic will exit to Route 17 at exit 133 (Falmouth/Warrenton). The on-ramps to I-95 northbound from Route 17 northbound and southbound in Stafford will also be closed during these hours.

Local travelers seeking to enter I-95 northbound between 11:00 p.m. and 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23-early Friday, April 26 will detour to Route 17 Business to Route 1 northbound to Centreport Parkway in Stafford. Travelers can enter I-95 northbound at the exit 136 interchange.

Signs and message boards will be posted to guide motorists along the detour. 

Intense paving activity will be underway on I-95 between exits 130 and 136 this spring, as well as on Route 17 near I-95 in Stafford. Crews are finishing construction for the I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing in May 2024 and for the 95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension in June 2024.
