25 Sep Drivers should avoid I-95 in Richmond this weekend
Drivers planning to travel on I-95 near Richmond this weekend may want to explore alternative routes, as the replacement of the Laburnam Avenue bridge is likely to cause major delays.
Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction beginning at 8pm tonight (10/21/11) and ending Monday morning (10/24/11) at 6:00 a.m, while contractors work on the south end of the bridge. Drivers can also expect major delays next weekend, when construction will continue on the bridge’s north end.
Alternate routes available to Richmond drivers (and those just passing through) include Interstate 295, state Route 288 or Interstate 195 and the Downtown Expressway. Please consider using one of these routes instead of Interstate 95 this weekend, and if you need to take I-95, please respect the construction workers and your fellow drivers and drive cautiously.
For more information about this weekend’s construction and the I-95 bridge replacement project, you can find the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s coverage here.
Have a safe and happy weekend!
