Major Lane Closures Continue on I-395 South This Weekend between King and Duke Streets
Closures needed for bridge improvement work

FAIRFAX, Va. – Motorists are advised that lane closures will continue this weekend on southbound I-395 from King Street (Exit 5) to Duke Street (Exit 3) for bridge rehabilitation work. Closures will begin on Friday night, Sept. 20 through early Monday morning, Sept. 23. All lanes will reopen, including the HOV lanes in the northbound direction, in time for Monday morning’s commute.

Drivers traveling out of D.C. this weekend are urged to use alternative routes or plan extra travel time. Local traffic may still use the general purpose lanes, but should expect closures.

What Drivers Should Expect:

  • Lane closures on southbound I-395 will begin at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.
  • At least two lanes on southbound I-395 will remain open to traffic during daytime hours on Saturday and Sunday.
  • A single southbound HOV lane will be open Friday night until Saturday evening, after which the HOV lanes will close until 6 p.m. Sunday. After 6 p.m. Sunday, the HOV lanes will open in the northbound direction.
  • Weekly updates with specific closure information will be available at: ExpressLanes.com and VDOT's 395 Express Lanes Web Page.
  • The reversible 95 Express Lanes, from near Edsall Road to past Garrisonville Road in Stafford, will operate according to their normal schedule

This weekend’s lane closures are needed for crews to complete improvements on bridges over I-395, as part of the overall 395 Express Lanes Project. The 395 Express Lanes are an eight-mile extension of the 95 Express Lanes to the Washington D.C. line, and are scheduled to open this fall.
