FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Department of Transportation has announced that there will be delays across Interstate 95 in both directions in the Fredericksburg area this week due to construction and maintenance work.

Throughout this week, travelers on I-95 can expect lane closures and full traffic stops to be implemented overnight between the exits for Quantico in Stafford County (exit 148) and Carmel Church in Caroline County (exit 104), VDOT said in a release on Monday.

Intermittent full stops on I-95 northbound and southbound are scheduled to take place between midnight and 3 a.m. near the Quantico exit in the mornings, from Tuesday through Friday. According to VDOT, traffic may be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time.

VDOT said the delays are due to crews building bridges and ramps as part of the future 95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension, as well as work zones created for the inspection of I-95 overpasses and resurfacing travel lanes.

VDOT is advising drivers to take alternate routes during the times when crews are working to avoid major delays.
