DUMFRIES, Va. (AP) - Construction work will necessitate a full closure of southbound Interstate 95 in Prince William County overnight Friday and Saturday.
The work is part of the 95 Express Lanes project. Construction has been commonplace on overnight weekend hours, but the work this weekend is resulting in more extensive closures.
Weather permitting, the Virginia Department of Transportation will begin closing lanes at 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights on southbound I-95 near Dumfries at Exit 152.
All southbound lanes will be closed from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Saturday and 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Sunday.
Traffic will be detoured onto U.S. 1 and rerouted onto I-95 at exit 150.
VDOT says motorists can expect up to 20 minute delays.
