I-395 Northbound Nighttime Triple Lane Closures at Duke Street in Alexandria Nov. 6
Traffic stoppages during work to implement traffic shift as part of Duke Street over I-395 project

ALEXANDRIA – Three lanes of the northbound I-395 general purpose lanes at Duke Street (Route 236) will be closed, weather permitting, between 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 and 6 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7 to implement a traffic shift, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Also, intermittent traffic stoppages lasting up to 20 minutes each will occur between midnight and 5 a.m.

Drivers should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes. All Duke Street interchange ramps will remain open.

Beginning Sunday morning, northbound I-395 general purpose lanes traffic at Duke Street will be shifted to the right until summer 2022.

The work is part of the project to rehabilitate the Duke Street bridge over I-395. The improvements will extend the overall life of the bridge and improve safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and include replacing the concrete bridge deck and beams, upgrading the westbound sidewalk to a shared-use path, and widening the eastbound sidewalk. The project is scheduled for completion in winter 2023/24.

Visit the VDOT project page for more details. 

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are reminded to use caution when traveling in active work zones. Be alert to new traffic patterns and limit distractions.
