VDOT hoping to wrap up I-95 north widening
So VDOT has extended its daytime work hours in the construction zone. On Wednesday and Thursday this week, one lane will be closed on northbound I-95 between the Route 1 on-ramp and the Fairfax County Parkway from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. (It had been till 3:30 p.m.) Then on Saturday, if weather permits, one lane will be closed in the same area from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
We're getting toward the end of the paving season, when the temperature drops below the point where asphalt can be laid, but VDOT thinks this revised schedule will allow drivers to use the new fourth lane between the Fairfax County Parkway and Route 123 in Woodbridge in time for Christmas week.
This will be the northbound lane only. A new southbound lane is scheduled to open in fall 2010.
