I-95 NORTH TO BE CLOSED TEMPORARILY TONIGHT
Construction to repair portion of bridge beam
VDOT contractors will begin single lane closures along I-95 north tonight at 9 p.m. By 10 p.m., all I-95 north traffic will be detoured around the work zone. Traffic is expected to be restored by 5:30 a.m. tomorrow morning.
For safety reasons, motorists will be restricted from traveling along I-95 north during the bridge repair work. A clearly marked detour will be in place to direct traffic around the work zone. Traffic will be detoured off the highway at Exit 45 (Rt. 301). Motorists will re-enter the highway at the I-95 north on-ramp from Rt. 301 (see diagram below). I-95 north motorists can expect delays of up to 30 minutes when traveling through this area.
Rt. 301 through traffic will continue to have access over the bridge during the repairs and detour.
VDOT encourages motorists to drive safely through this work zone and follow these safety tips:
- Drive at posted speed limits
- Obey signs, transition devices and pavement markings
- Watch for flaggers and follow their directions
- Look for changes in work zone locations
- Stay alert
