Virginia lane closures return Monday
Temporary lane closures in Virginia were lifted over the holiday weekend by the Virginia Department of Transportation. They were lifted beginning at noon last Wednesday and that runs through noon on Monday, Nov. 29. VDOT is trying to lessen the potential for delays during the busy Thanksgiving travel period.
The travel agency lifted HOV restrictions on I-66, I-95 and I-395 on Thanksgiving Day, but they will be in effect today.
VDOT says drivers can expect heavy congestion in the following locations (keep in mind that this isn't an exhaustive list):
-- Interstate 95 between Richmond and Interstates 495/395 Springfield Interchange
-- Interstate 66 eastbound and westbound in Northern Virginia
-- Interstates 81/77 interchange near Wytheville
-- I-81 near Lexington to south of Roanoke
-- Interstates 64/95 in the Richmond area
