All lanes of I-95 northbound and southbound will remain open overnight at Mudd Tavern Road overpass south of Fredericksburg

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Due to forecasted inclement weather, lane closures and full traffic stops scheduled for this evening for bridge beam placement on Interstate 95 at Exit 118 in Spotsylvania County have been cancelled.

All lanes of I-95 northbound and southbound will remain open tonight at this work zone. 

New dates for the bridge beam installation at Exit 118 will be scheduled and announced in advance.

Construction is underway on a $22.4 million project to build a new four-lane overpass on Mudd Tavern Road bridging I-95. Crews are using a crane to lift beams into place over the I-95 travel lanes, which requires several evenings of overnight lane closures with full, intermittent traffic stops between midnight and 5 a.m.

The Mudd Tavern Road overpass is located at Exit 118 in Thornburg. It is between I-95 Exit 126/Spotsylvania and Exit 110/Ladysmith in Caroline County.

Interchange improvements are also underway at Exit 118 that will improve the alignment of interchange ramps with Mudd Tavern Road, and the alignment of nearby Mallard Road.

Construction began in October 2017 and will be completed in September 2019.



Real-time information on the I-95 lane closures at Exit 118 will be available on 511Virginia. Check 511Virginia before starting a trip for real-time information about traffic, incidents, work zones and road conditions in Virginia.
