FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Interstate 95 northbound travelers can expect major travel delays in the Fredericksburg area approaching exit 148 (Quantico) during this morning's commuter travel period due to an extended work zone to set bridge beams over the travel lanes.

All northbound travel lanes were scheduled to open by 4 a.m. Overnight construction was underway to set bridge beams over the northbound I-95 travel lanes for a new flyover ramp as part of the 95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project.

Northbound I-95 traffic continues to have a single lane diverted into the 95 Express Lanes north of exit 143 to bypass the work zone.
