FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Motorists should continue to avoid travel on Interstate 95 in the Fredericksburg area, with southbound traffic stopped and northbound traffic significantly delayed as Virginia Department of Transportation crews work to clear major incidents in Stafford County involving disabled or crashed tractor-trailers.
