WOODBRIDGE, Va. – The HOV lanes on Interstate 95 and 395 will close this weekend.
Here’s more in a press release from VDOT:
This Friday night, May 30, through Sunday morning, June 1, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will close the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes on I-95/395 from the D.C. line to Dumfries, just south of Exit 152 (Route 234). The HOV lanes will close at 11 p.m. on Friday night through 10 a.m. Saturday morning, and again on Saturday night at 11 p.m., opening Sunday morning by 10 a.m. heading north.
As part of the 95 Express Lanes construction, the closures will allow crews to continue work on overhead sign structures, pull fiber optic lines that are needed for future tolling equipment, mill and pave the new lanes, and finish bridge work.
In addition, beginning at 11 p.m. tonight, two right lanes will be closed on I-95 North from Exit 152 to the truck scales as crews shift traffic to make room for construction of a retaining wall. On Saturday morning, May 31, the lanes will reopen and crews will work on the left area of the pavement, requiring a mobile lane closure. Work will include paving and lane marking, and installation of signage. All work is expected to be completed by 9 a.m., Saturday Morning, May 31. In case of rain, this work will be moved to Saturday night through Sunday morning.
*Single lane closure may be implemented earlier*
