The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that overnight travelers on Interstate 95 are advised to plan ahead to avoid major delays tonight through early Friday, April 15 near the Fredericksburg area for bridge construction and demolition ahead of the Easter holiday weekend.

Drivers with destinations outside of the Fredericksburg area are encouraged to take alternate routes, including Route 301 or Route 1, with full traffic stops planned on I-95 northbound in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties.

Just prior to exit 126 (Massaponax) in Spotsylvania, I-95 northbound traffic will be stopped overnight intermittently between midnight and 3:00 a.m. for up to 30 minutes as crews install bridge beams for a new Route 17 overpass. Construction is advancing to replace the existing two-lane interstate overpass with a four-lane bridge.

In Stafford, crews will stop all I-95 northbound traffic intermittently between midnight and 3:00 a.m. for bridge demolition of the American Legion Road overpass as part of the 95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project. Stops may last up to 30 minutes. The American Legion Road overpass is located at mile marker 138, between exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) and exit 140 (Courthouse Road). The overpass is being replaced to accommodate construction of two reversible high occupancy toll lanes in the I-95 median. Express lanes are being extended the vicinity of exit 133 (Route 17).

Additionally, final paving activities on I-95 southbound are underway near the exit 130 (Route 3) interchange, which will require double lane closures on local and through lanes.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be lifting most lane closures and work zones on I-95 and other primary routes for the Easter holiday starting at noon Friday until noon Tuesday, April 19.
