STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – It appears several large potholes have formed on Interstate 95 in Stafford County.

Those potholes caught the attention of highway crews and state police that were called to the Falmouth area to repair them and divert traffic, respectively.

More in a press release from the Virginia Department of Transportation:

Several large potholes have developed on I-95 south at Exit 133 (Rt. 17/Falmouth) in Stafford County closing one travel lane on I-95 south and the ramp acceleration lane to Route 17 towards Falmouth. The potholes are located on the bridge over Route 17.
