TRAFFIC ALERT: Lane closures scheduled on I-95

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - I-95 near Boulevard will be down to one lane overnight through Thursday in each direction as crews begin prep work to replace the bridge over the road.

This is the second I-95 bridge to be replaced as part of VDOT's plan to restore 11 I-95 bridges in our area.  Crews finished restoring the bridge over Laburnum Avenue earlier this month.

Prep work for the project will be April 15 - April 19 allowing only one lane open in each direction 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The bridge replacement is expected to begin May 1.

VDOT encourages drivers to use alternate routes to bypass the construction.
