I-95 S closing Wed., Thurs.

By Michael D. Bolden

The Virginia Department of Transportation plans to close three of four lanes of Interstate 95 South between the Franconia-Springfield Parkway overpass and the Fairfax County parkway overpass (exit 166B) overnight Wednesday and Thursday, with intermittent full closures. The closures will also affect all HOV lanes, officials said.

Crews will be installing a new sign as part of the Fairfax County Parkway project.

The closures will begin each night with the southbound HOV lanes, which will begin closing at 9 p.m. After 11 p.m. drivers heading north will be able to access the HOV lanes north of Springfield, but the HOV lanes between Dumfries and Newington will be closed from 9 p.m. until 3 a.m.

There will be two complete closures of I-95 South of up to 20 minutes each after midnight. Officials said all lanes of I-95 should reopen by 5 a.m.
