NB I-95 LANE CLOSURES NEAR PRINCE WILLIAM PKWY., EXIT 158
Closures include 20-30 minute total stoppages after midnight for sign placement

FAIRFAX: - Drivers can expect multiple lane closures on I-95 North near Exit 158 at the Prince William Parkway (Route 289) during overnight hours on Monday, Aug. 3, and Tuesday, Aug. 4.

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), lanes will begin closing at 9 p.m. each night, and there will be intermittent full closures after midnight, lasting between 20 to 30 minutes. All lanes will reopen by 4 a.m. the next morning. In the event of inclement weather, work would take place on Wednesday night, Aug. 5.

The closures are needed for crews to erect a new overhead sign. This work is part of the 95 Shoulder Improvement Project, which includes new auxiliary lanes and widened safety shoulders on a seven-mile stretch of I-95 between Dumfries Road and the Prince William Parkway. New guardrail and lighting are being added as well.

More information about the project is available at http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/northernvirginia/i-95_auxiliary_lane_and_shoulder_safety_improvements.asp
