Seminary Road Bridge Work in Alexandria to Continue Monday, April 6 through Thursday, April 9

ALEXANDRIA - Motorists and area residents are advised that the westbound Seminary Road service road will be reduced to one lane at the 395 Express Lanes ramp beginning at 10 p.m. Monday, April 6 and lasting until 5 a.m. Thursday, April 9. These closures are needed for continued bridge improvement work, as part of the overall 395 Express Lanes project. Drivers should follow detour signs.

What to Expect:

  • The westbound Seminary Road service road will be reduced to one lane
  • The 395 Express lanes entry/exit will be closed to/from westbound Seminary Road
  • Travelers will have access to the northbound I-395 general purpose lanes

Throughout this scheduled work, drivers should expect delays in this area and are asked to slow down, remain alert and watch for construction crews working near Seminary Road. The extended work hours are possible due to recent lighter traffic volumes, and will allow crews to expedite completion of this work while minimizing the duration of impacts to area residents and drivers.

All work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled or extended if inclement conditions occur.

Work crews are following the most recent guidance from the federal and state government and are committed to the health and safety of all those who work and interact with the construction operation.

This bridge improvement work is being delivered as part of the 395 Express Lanes project. The eight-mile 395 Express Lanes opened on Nov. 17 and connect the 95 Express Lanes to Washington, D.C. Learn how the lanes work and plan your trip at www.ExpressLanes.com

The 395 Express Lanes are a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Transurban. See more details on the project and related lane closures.
