Virginia DOT Lifts Lane Closures for July 4th Holiday Travelers

I-95 Fredericksburg, Virginia Traffic | I-95 Exit Guide

To keep travelers focused on the Fourth of July fun-in-the-sun and fireworks instead of traffic, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be suspending most highway work zones and lifting most lane closures on interstates and other major roads in Virginia from noon on Monday, July 3 until noon on Wednesday, July 5.

While lane closures will be lifted in most locations, motorists may encounter semi-permanent work zones that remain in place during this time.


Based on the historical traffic data:

  • Periods of moderate to heavy congestion will likely occur on Friday, June 30, between noon and 6:00 p.m.
  • Routes to and from Virginia Beach are also likely to be congested on Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4 from mid-morning to evening, especially near the tunnels.
  • Interstate 95 and Interstate 395, in both directions, are expected to be congested for the entire travel period.
  • Heavy congestion is expected on Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1 on I-77 northbound from midday to evening.
