EXPECT OVERNIGHT DELAYS ON I-95 SOUTHBOUND TOMORROW IN STAFFORD COUNTY
Motorists can anticipate double lane closures with a mobile work zone between Exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) and the Rappahannock River Bridge on Wednesday, July 12

FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists should anticipate overnight travel delays and lane closures tomorrow night on Interstate 95 southbound in Stafford County for a mobile work zone to allow crews to install reflective pavement markings after a recent pavement project.

On the evening of July 12, crews will begin on the I-95 southbound on-ramp from Exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) at 9 p.m. The on-ramp will remain open. Motorists can expect just a slight narrowing of the ramp to allow the crew to install the pavement markings.

The mobile work zone will then move to I-95 southbound from Centreport Parkway to Exit 133 (Route 17/Falmouth) to the Rappahannock River Bridge. The mobile work zone requires a double lane closure to allow crews to work safely and install the pavement markings among the traveling public.

Lanes on I-95 will be closed on the following schedule, weather permitting:

Wednesday, July 12

I˗95 Southbound at Exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) to Rappahannock River Bridge

  • On-ramp narrowed at 9 p.m.
  • Double lane closure with mobile work zone at 10 p.m.
  • All lanes re-open to traffic by 4 a.m.

Message boards will warn travelers to stay alert for the work zone ahead and possible delays.
