VDOT TO PERFORM SIGN WORK ON I-95 TODAY
Two right lanes will be closed this afternoon on I-95 northbound in Stafford for sign repair

FREDERICKSBURG—An overhead guide sign will be repaired or removed on northbound Interstate 95 this afternoon in Stafford County.

 

Beginning at 1:15 p.m. this afternoon, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will work to either repair or remove an overhead guide sign on northbound I-95 at mile marker 141.9, between Exit 140/Stafford and Exit 143 Aquia/Garrisonville.

 

CNI04182007064546_fTwo right lanes of northbound I-95 were closed for a routine inspection of the sign structure Friday morning, and both lanes will remain closed for the repair or removal of the guide sign. Both lanes are expected to re-open by approximately 4 p.m.

 

VDOT will attempt to repair the sign, or will take it to a VDOT facility for repair.

 

An inspection this morning identified damage to four of the bolts linking the guide sign to the cantilevered arm.

 

VDOT has a sign inspection program in place for 31,000 sign and ancillary structures statewide. Each one is inspected at least every five years.
