TRAFFIC STOPS ON I-95 SOUTHBOUND TONIGHT AT FREDERICKSBURG
Brief 15-minute stops between midnight-2 a.m. for crane work

FREDERICKSBURG –Interstate 95 southbound traffic at Fredericksburg will be stopped for two 15-minute periods early Tuesday morning so workers can move a crane across the interstate’s travel lanes.

Virginia State Police will slowly roll traffic on I-95 southbound to a stop just after midnight at the Fall Hill Avenue overpass, located between Exit 133/Falmouth and Exit 130/Route 3 at Fredericksburg. The traffic stop is estimated to last 15 minutes.

Workers are moving a crane from the interstate shoulder to the median to collect heavy construction materials. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is building a new interstate overpass at Fall Hill Avenue.

Traffic will be released to proceed once the crane is in the median.

Shortly before 2 a.m. police will gradually stop traffic on I-95 southbound again for up to 15 minutes, allowing the crane to travel back to the interstate shoulder.

Motorists can find real-time information about traffic, incidents and work zones on Virginia roads at 511Virginia.

Download the free mobile VDOT 511 app for Apple and Android devices to stay connected, or visit www.511Virginia.org. Motorists also can reach 511Virginia by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia.
