EXPECT MAJOR I-95 DELAYS OVERNIGHT IN STAFFORD FOR BRIDGE DEMOLITION JAN. 30 – FEB. 7
Demolition of the Truslow Road overpass between Exit 133 (Route 17) and Exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) will require I-95 northbound and southbound lane closures, plus intermittent full traffic stops between midnight and 3 a.m. on several evenings

FEB. 5, 2020 UPDATE: All lanes of Interstate 95 will remain open at the Route 652 (Truslow Road) overpass in Stafford County tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 5 and on Thursday, Feb. 6. Scheduled lane closures for demolition work have been cancelled.

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. Interstate 95 travelers can expect major overnight travel delays in Stafford County on most evenings over the next week as construction crews demolish the Route 652 (Truslow Road) overpass, which is located between I-95 Exit 133 (Route 17) and Exit 136 (Centreport Parkway).

Intermittent full traffic stops for I-95 in both directions are needed on several evenings between midnight and 3 a.m. Traffic may be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time. In between each stop, congestion will be allowed to clear before the next full stop.

Virginia State Police will assist with traffic control in the work zone.

Stopping all I-95 traffic is necessary to allow crews to use a crane to safely remove bridge beams and pieces of the bridge deck located over the travel lanes.

Crews are replacing the Truslow Road overpass as part of the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project

Drivers are advised to consider using Route 1 as an alternate route to avoid delays. Message boards will be posted along I-95 to alert motorists to delays ahead.

Project Background

Crews are currently building the 10-mile extension of the I-95 Express Lanes in the median of I-95 from south of Exit 143 (Route 610) to the vicinity of Exit 133 (Route 17).  

Construction on the $565 million project began in July 2019. 

The extended Express Lanes are anticipated to open to traffic in late 2022. All work related to the project is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
