Detours Tonight On I-395

The northbound lanes of Interstate 395 at Springfield will be closed tonight, Saturday night and Monday night so workers can position steel beams on bridges that are part of the Springfield interchange project.

The lanes will be closed tonight from 9:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. tomorrow; from 8:30 p.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday; and from 9:30 p.m. Monday to 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Northbound I-395 motorists heading to exits inside the Capital Beltway or to the inner loop of the Beltway will follow a seven-mile detour onto the outer loop to Van Dorn Street, to Eisenhower Avenue and back onto the inner loop. There they can take the exit for I-395 north. Officials said the detour could take as long as 45 minutes.

HOV lanes will be open for northbound traffic during the construction periods, and officials said through travelers should use them.
