FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT: CONSTRUCTION THIS WEEK TO IMPROVE I-95
Expect overnight lane closures on I-95 starting tonight, April 13 through early Saturday, April 18

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractors continue construction to improve Interstate 95 in the Fredericksburg area this week. 

Starting tonight, April 13, through early Saturday, April 18, overnight lane closures are scheduled to advance work on the Exit 140 Diverging Diamond Interchange,  the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project and the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project in Stafford County. 

Milling and paving on I-95 southbound in Caroline County will also start this week. Click here to read the news release. 

The I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project is currently building the future I-95 northbound overpass of Route 17. The project team will need to close the I-95 southbound Exit 133B ramp to Route 17 northbound towards Warrenton to shift traffic to a temporary alignment. The exit ramp will close at 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 and reopen 5:30 a.m. Friday, April 17. Click here for a map of the detour.
