Full Stoppages on I-395 North and South Thursday, June 27
Closures needed for overhead sign removal near Edsall Road; Stoppage in each direction of no more than 30 minutes on general purpose lanes

FAIRFAX, Va. - Motorists are advised that I-395 North and I-395 South will be reduced to one lane during overnight hours Thursday, June 27 near Edsall Road. Periodic traffic stoppages of up to 30 minutes will occur in each direction between Midnight and 4 a.m. These closures are needed for crews to remove an overhead sign as part of the I-395 Express Lanes Northern Extension Project. Work is weather dependent.
Beginning at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday night, a single lane will close on I-395 North and on I-395 South, followed by additional lanes closing at 11 p.m. Intermittent traffic stoppages in each direction are scheduled to occur between Midnight and 4 a.m. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.
As construction progresses this summer, motorists should expect single lane closures on the I-395 HOV lanes weekdays between the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and single lane closures on the general purpose lanes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The 395 Express Lanes, which involve extending the current express lanes eight miles north to the 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.
The 395 Express Lanes are a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Transurban.
