3:35 P.M. UPDATEInterstate 95 northbound remains closed to through traffic at exit 133 (Route 17) in Stafford County, following an earlier truck strike of the Truslow Road overpass.

I-95 northbound traffic is being detoured at exit 133, where motorists can access Route 17 northbound or Route 17 Business southbound to Route 1.
