Stafford County Sheriff's Office

Northbound lanes of Interstate 95 have reopened after the dump bed of a dump truck got stuck beneath the Truslow Road overpass in Stafford County, Virginia, authorities said Tuesday.

All lanes were initially shut down near mile marker 133. Backups stretched 10 miles on the southbound side and 6 miles on the northbound side about 3:30 p.m.

Photos posted by the Stafford County Sheriff's Office and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) showed the dump bed stuck vertically beneath the overpass.

Truslow Road was also closed.

Northbound traffic was being detoured at exit 133, where drivers could access Route 17 northbound or Route 17 Business southbound to Route 1, VDOT said.

The closures were in place until the bridge could be inspected, the truck was removed and debris could be cleaned, VDOT Fredericksburg said on Twitter.

"The Truslow Road overpass has reopened to through traffic. Be alert for crews working on the eastbound shoulder of Truslow Rd.," the agency said.

VDOT told drivers to expect residual delays as congestion clears on I-95 and Route 1 northbound in the Fredericksburg region.
