With the spring season here, drivers should anticipate delays on Interstate 95 northbound and southbound in the Fredericksburg area with Improve 95 program construction in full bloom.

Multiple work zones are scheduled on I-95 this week, including several brief full traffic stops starting tonight, March 22 in Stafford County, north of Exit 133 (Route 17).

I-95 northbound and southbound traffic will be stopped up to 30 minutes between midnight and 3 a.m. at the site of the future Truslow Road overpass under construction at mile marker 134 as part of the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project.
Two other projects as part of the Improve 95 program will also have lane closures including the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing and I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing.

Guardrail repair will also be performed this week at various locations during daytime off-peak travel times to minimize delays for drivers.
