FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — There will be major roadwork happening on I-95 just days ahead of Easter weekend.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is warning drivers to seek alternate routes around the Fredericksburg area, while crews work on bridge construction and demolition ahead of the Easter holiday weekend. The road work will begin Wednesday, April 13, and go through early Friday, April 15.

Drivers with destinations outside of the Fredericksburg area are encouraged to take alternate routes, including Route 301 or Route 1, as VDOT has full traffic stops lasting up to 30 minutes planned on I-95 northbound in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties.

VDOT said it will be lifting most work zones and lane closures in the area starting noon Friday, April 15 through Tuesday, April 19 to allow easier access for holiday travelers.
