Expect Major Delays on 95 North Near Fredericksburg

UPDATE: Work Zone Extended Through Thursday, December 8

Due to rain anticipated overnight, a work zone on Interstate 95 northbound in the Fredericksburg area scheduled for December 5-7 has been extended to continue until 4:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 8.

Northbound I-95 travelers can continue to expect heavy traffic, especially at peak periods, between exit 130 (Route 3) in the City of Fredericksburg and exit 136 (Centreport Parkway) in Stafford County.

Through travelers with destinations north of the Washington, D.C, area, are encouraged to detour at exit 104 (Carmel Church) in Caroline County, and travel Route 207 eastbound to Route 301 northbound to avoid delay.

Currently, three lanes of I-95 northbound are open over the Rappahannock River between Fredericksburg and Stafford. Two through lanes of traffic are crossing the new I-95 northbound bridge. A third lane crosses the original northbound Rappahannock River bridge, and allows motorists to access exit 133 (Falmouth/Warrenton), but also rejoins with the I-95 travel lanes north of exit 133.

Northbound I-95 traffic will remain in this temporary split configuration until 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7.
