I-95 Southbound Nighttime Lane Closures in Woodbridge Nov. 6-8
Lanes closed nightly between Route 123 and Prince William Parkway for traffic shift

WOODBRIDGE – Two lanes of southbound I-95 between Route 123 (Gordon Boulevard) and the Prince William Parkway (Route 294) will be closed, weather permitting, Saturday night, Nov. 6 and Sunday night, Nov. 7, and the right lane of southbound I-95 between Route 123 and the Prince William Parkway will be closed Monday night, Nov. 8 to implement a traffic shift, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The nightly lane closures will occur according to the following schedule:

  • 10 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday: Two left lanes closed
  • 10 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday: Two right lanes closed
  • 9:30 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9: Right lane closed

Drivers should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes. The Route 123 and Prince William Parkway ramps will remain open. 

Once the traffic shift is in place, southbound I-95 traffic between Route 123 and the Prince William Parkway will be shifted slightly to the left until summer 2022.

The work is part of the project to create an auxiliary lane on southbound I-95 from Route 123 to the Prince William Parkway. The project is converting about a mile and a half of the existing shoulder to a travel lane, from the end of the existing entrance ramp from Route 123 to the beginning of the exit ramp to the Prince William Parkway. The auxiliary lane will make it easier for drivers to merge into and out of traffic between the ramps and free up additional room for through-drivers.

The project will also provide a new paved shoulder, relocate noise walls as needed, replace impacted roadway lighting, install or upgrade guardrails, and build new retaining walls. The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2022.

Visit the VDOT project page for more details, including a video simulation of the new lane. 

Drivers are reminded to use caution when traveling in active work zones. Be alert to new traffic patterns and limit distractions.
