I-95 Southbound Slow, Possibly Through Evening Rush Hour

Traffic is going to be heavy and move slowly on I-95 South from now until about 8 p.m., said Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Joan Morris. While there are no incidents or problems to report, it's going to be slow going for the foreseeable future.

From the traffic we can see on the traffic cameras, it doesn't get too bad until you hit Route 123 (past Lorton). Then it's pretty congested by the time you're in Woodbridge. (There are spots where it doesn't seem so bad, but they are mirages. Don't let them fool you.) It's still bad as far south as Stafford. Once you get further south, it does appear the traffic lessens. But be aware.

3:30 P.M. UPDATE: The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that major delays due to congestion can be expected at mile marker 148.3 in Prince William County (near the Stafford County line) -- traffic backups are approximately 8 miles.
