Weather permitting, on Friday night, July 19, through Sunday night July 21, starting each night at 9:30 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation will begin to close lanes on I-95 south near Exit 148, Marine Corps Base Quantico.

Following the single and multiple lane closures, crews will progress to a full closure of I-95 south by 1 a.m. until 4 a.m., Saturday morning; 1 a.m. until 5 a.m., Sunday morning; and 1 a.m. until 3 a.m. Monday morning.
This closure will allow crews to safely lift steel beams into place for the new Telegraph Road Bridge over the I-95 southbound lanes in Quantico.

All I-95 southbound traffic will be directed to Exit 148, MCBQ, to U.S. Route 1 south to Garrisonville Road (Route 610) and back onto I-95 South. Police will be on-site and traffic- signal timing will be adjusted to assist with this detour.
Motorists may experience up to 25 minutes additional travel time.

Lanes will begin to open one at a time when overnight detours end, with all lanes restored by 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings, July 20-21, and by 5 a.m. Monday morning, July 22.

Once steel operations for the new Telegraph Road Bridge over I-95 south are complete, crews will move to the I-95 northbound side where work is scheduled for the weekend of July 26, with 30 min traffic stoppages in all lanes after midnight.
As part of the 95 Express Lanes Project, motorists should also expect nightly lane closures, Mondays through Saturdays, and extended HOV lane closures during the day on Saturdays, throughout the summer.
