Friday Night Closure on I-95

The closure will be removed by Saturday morning.

Looking south on I-95 near the Newington exit, crews prepare a box beam that will support the ramp to and from the future 95 Express Lanes, which is scheduled to be put in place this Friday night. This ramp, which is near Alban Road and the Fairfax County Parkway, will be a reversible ramp linking the express lanes and the Fairfax County Parkway. On Friday night, Aug. 23, crews will close the right lane of I-95 south at 9:30 p.m., a second lane at 11 p.m., and progress to a full closure after midnight. The full closure will be removed by 6 a.m., with all lanes open by 9 a.m. Saturday morning, Aug. 24. During the I-95 closure, through traffic on southbound I-95 will be diverted to the HOV lanes through the construction, and local traffic looking to access the Fairfax County Parkway, or Lorton Road area will be detoured to Backlick Road (Exit 167) to access the Fairfax County Parkway via Furnace Road and Lorton Road via Route 1. All closures are weather permitting. If inclement weather occurs, the full closure of I-95 South will take place Saturday night, Aug. 24 into Sunday morning Aug. 25.
