I-395 South Reduced to Single Lane During Overnight Hours This Weekend, April 5-6
Closures needed for overhead sign installation between Duke Street and Edsall Road; Intermittent traffic stoppages on general purpose lanes April 6

FAIRFAX, Va. – Motorists are advised that I-395 South will be reduced to one lane during overnight hours on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 between Duke Street (Exit 3) and Edsall Road (Exit 2). Periodic traffic stoppages of up to 30 minutes will occur Saturday, April 6 until early Sunday, April 7, from Midnight to 5 a.m. These closures are needed for crews to install an overhead sign structure as part of the I-395 Express Lanes Northern Extension Project. Work is weather dependent.

Beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, a single lane will close on I-395 South, followed by additional lanes closing at 11 p.m. Intermittent traffic stoppages on the southbound lanes are scheduled to occur on Saturday night after Midnight. All lanes will reopen by 9 a.m. each morning.

HOV lanes on I-395 will close at 11 p.m. on Friday night until 5 a.m. Monday morning for ongoing express lanes construction.

As construction progresses this spring and 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 closure 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.
