Emergency bridge repair work at Route 17 overpasses will be underway near Exit 133/Falmouth between 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

FREDERICKSBURG – Northbound and southbound Interstate 95 traffic will be affected tonight by emergency bridge repair work at the Route 17 overpasses in Stafford County, just north of the Rappahannock River bridge at Exit 133/Falmouth.


Crews will be surveying the deck on two bridges, requiring lane closures in both directions.


Lane closures will occur tonight on the following schedule:


  • 8 p.m. − One northbound I-95 lane closed
  • 10 p.m. – Two northbound I-95 lanes closed


When work is complete on the northbound I-95 overpass, all northbound lanes will be re-opened, and crews will shift to the southbound I-95 overpass.


  • Midnight to 4:30 a.m. − Two southbound I-95 lanes may be closed between midnight and 4:30 a.m. The precise closure time will vary.


All lanes will be re-opened by 4:30 a.m.


Crews are starting permanent bridge deck repairs on the overpasses, which have had temporary pothole repairs recently. Tonight’s survey work will identify areas in need of repair.
