Virginia Suspends I-95 Construction Lane Closures for Fourth of July Holiday

The Virginia Department of Transportation will help make trips easier by suspending most highway work zones and lifting most lane closures on interstates and other major roads in Virginia from noon Tuesday, July 3 until noon Thursday, July 5.

While the lane closure lift is in effect for most areas, motorists may encounter semi-permanent work zones that remain in place during this time.

I-95 Slip Ramp in Fredericksburg Now Open

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) opened the separate, free flow lane from the Interstate 95 southbound exit ramp to Carl D. Silver Parkway in Fredericksburg on Thursday, June 14.

The slip ramp is part of the $21 million project to improve safety and enhance operations at Exit 130. Work is underway to modify the on- and off-ramps at the Route 3 interchange to reduce vehicle merging and weaving that can lead to crashes, injuries and congestion.

The new lane will allow I-95 southbound traffic to directly exit the interstate and enter the Central Park shopping area without merging with traffic on Route 3 westbound.

Message boards have been posted to alert drivers to the new traffic pattern.

I-95 southbound travelers who take Exit 130B and do not exit to the slip ramp will still be able to access Central Park from Route 3 westbound with dual right turn lanes onto Carl D. Silver Parkway.
