I-95 South at Exit 143 Closed Friday and Saturday During Overnight Hours; Traffic Detoured to Route 1
All lanes are scheduled to close Friday and Saturday nights on I-95 south just before Marine Corps Base Quantico Russell Road, Exit 143 to Garrisonville Road (Route 610), Exit 148. Traffic will be detoured to U.S. Route 1. Lanes will begin closing on both nights at 9:30 p.m. with all lanes closed between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.
