This week will bring another round of major overnight delays on I-95, VDOT warned in an email notice.

Starting April 25, the bridge demolition of the American Legion Road overpass in Stafford County will require full traffic stops on I-95 northbound and southbound, VDOT said in Monday's announcement. The American Legion Road overpass is located at mile marker 138, between exit 136, Centreport Parkway, and exit 140, Courthouse Road.

Crews will stop traffic intermittently between midnight and 3 a.m. Each stop can last up to 30 minutes, VDOT’s notice added.

This replacement work is underway to allow crews to build two reversible high occupancy toll lanes in the I-95 median. Express lanes are being extended from its southern terminus point at exit 143, Route 610, to the vicinity of exit 133, Route 17.

Beginning on Tuesday, April 26, crews will be lifting and installing bridge beams for the future access point to the express lanes at the exit 148 Quantico interchange. According to VDOT, for the sake of safety, the express lanes facility will close at exit 150, Joplin Road, in Prince William County at 10 p.m. while that work is being done. Traffic using the southbound express lanes will be detoured to the general purpose lanes until 4 a.m.

The beam installation work at exit 148, will also lead to I-95 northbound being reduced to one lane from exit 143 to exit 148 each evening through Friday, April 29.

Road crews will be finishing paving work on I-95 southbound near the exit 130, Route 3, interchange, which will require double lane closures on local and through lanes, VDOT explained. And the department added that they will also need to close entrance and exit ramps at that interchange. During the ramp closures, drivers will be directed to detour, which are scheduled between midnight and 3 a.m.
