Weather permitting, on Friday night, July 12, and Saturday night July 13, starting at 9:30 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation will begin to close lanes on I-95 South. The road will be closed from Dumfries Road, Exit 152 to Joplin Road, Exit 150 Route, 619, and will progress to a full closure of I-95 south from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m., Saturday morning and 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday morning.
This closure will allow crews to safely lift steel beams for a new bridge that will carry traffic from the future I-95 Express Lanes located in the median to the right side of I-95 south near Joplin Road.
All I-95 southbound traffic will be directed off at Exit 152A, Dumfries Road (Route 234) east to U.S. Route 1 south to Joplin Road, (USMC Quantico), Route 619 and back to I-95 south. One lane on U.S. Route 1 south will also be closed prior to Dumfries Road (Route 234) to accommodate detour traffic.
Motorists can expect up to 20 minutes additional travel time from 9:30 p.m., Friday night, July 12, until 7 a.m., Saturday morning, July 13, and 9:30 p.m., Saturday night July 13, until 9 a.m., Sunday morning, July 14, as crews set-up the lane closures and detour route.
All lanes will be restored by 9 a.m., Saturday morning, July 13, and 10 a.m. Sunday morning, July 14.
Motorists should also expect nightly lane closures, Mondays through Saturdays, and during the day on Saturdays, throughout the summer weekends.
A similar detour will be in place the weekend of July 19, for another bridge structure and steel lifts at Telegraph Road in Quantico.
