Work will continue on the bridges over the Ni River which requires double lane closures

FREDERICKSBURG  –  Motorists should anticipate overnight lane closures and travel delays this week on Interstate 95 northbound and southbound in Spotsylvania County to allow crews to continue work to improve the condition of both bridges over the Ni River.

The bridges are located at mile marker 121, south of Exit 126/Spotsylvania.

Construction started last fall to improve the condition of both bridges on I-95 northbound and southbound over the Ni River as part of a project to rehabilitate six bridges on I-95 in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties.

The following lane closures are planned for this week beginning tonight, Aug. 7, weather permitting:

  • Double lane closure at 10 p.m.
