RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - With the spring season here, that means construction work on roadways is in full swing.

Interstate 95 drivers should expect delays in the Fredericksburg area with construction getting underway.

There are multiple work zones scheduled, with full traffic stops starting on March 22 in Stafford County north of Exit 133.

Northbound and southbound traffic will be stopped for up to 30 minutes between midnight and 3 a.m. at the site of the future Truslow Road overpass under construction at mile marker 134 as part of the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project.

“Two other projects as part of the Improve 95 program will also have lane closures including the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing and I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing,” VDOT said.

Weather permitting, here is the schedule from VDOT:
