I-395 Weekend Lane Closures Continue This Weekend, May 3-4
Closures needed for bridge work along I-395
FAIRFAX, Va. - Motorists are advised that two general purpose lanes on I-395 North and additional lanes as needed on I-395 South from the Seminary Road interchange to past Pentagon City/Crystal City (Exit 8C) will close on Friday night at 10 p.m. through Saturday morning. The ramp from Seminary Road to I-395 North also will close; motorists should follow detour signs. The closures are needed to accommodate the second of four planned weekends of bridge rehabilitation work along the corridor. This effort is part of the 395 Express Lanes Project.
To help ease traffic impacts, the HOV lanes from just north of Edsall Road to the D.C. line will be open, traveling in the northbound direction. Thru-traffic (northbound to DC) is encouraged to use the HOV lanes, while local traffic will need to use the open general purpose lanes. Additional closures may occur on the HOV lanes-only for ongoing construction activities after Saturday morning and throughout the remainder of the weekend.
All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement weather occurs. Weekly updates with specific closure information are available at: ExpressLanes.comand VDOT's 395 Express Lanes Web Page.
Current plans call for the reversible 95 Express Lanes, from near Edsall Road to past Garrisonville Road in Stafford, to operate according to their normal schedule.
The 395 Express Lanes, an eight-mile extension of the 95 Express Lanes to the Washington D.C. line, are scheduled to open this fall. Learn how Express Lanes work and how to get an E-ZPass at www.ExpressLanes.com.
