One lane of southbound Interstate 95 in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is closed for emergency repairs due to “severe erosion" along the shoulder, officials say.
A right lane is set to be closed through May 20, the Virginia Department of Transportation said Tuesday.
“The lane closure begins south of the on-ramp from the parking lot of the I-95 Southbound Safety Rest Area and Welcome Center at Fredericksburg, and ends north of the exit 130 (Route 3) interchange,” VDOT said. It’s a distance of roughly one mile.
The closed lane is one of the local travel lanes south of the Rappahannock River. Five southbound lanes will remain open, VDOT said.
