PLAN AHEAD FOR I-95 LANE CLOSURES THIS WEEK IN THE FREDERICKSBURG AREA
In Stafford County, I-95 southbound will be reduced to one lane overnight between exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) and exit 133 (Route 17)

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – As part of construction underway to improve Interstate 95 in the Fredericksburg area, travelers can anticipate delays during overnight and daytime lane closures scheduled this week between the exit 133 (Route 17) and exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) interchanges in Stafford County.

Additionally, milling and paving on I-95 northbound in Caroline County will continue this week, which requires double lane closures nightly through Thursday evening.

The rest area is closing to allow crews to pave the rest area’s ramps and merge areas.

Starting Sept. 1, daytime lane closures will be allowed on I-95 northbound in the Fredericksburg area, outside of peak travel times, following a seasonal restriction during May-August.
