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, to U.S. Route 1 south to Garrisonville Road (Route 610) and back onto I-95 South. Police will be on-site. The Virginia Department of Transportation warns travelers 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.
