FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) remains in emergency operations and is focused on clearing ice and snow from major routes in the Fredericksburg area, including Interstate 95.

Interstate 95 Update

Crews have made substantial progress since Tuesday morning directing travelers stopped on I-95 to the nearest possible interchange, allowing them to use alternate routes to access their destination.

To expedite clearance of the interstate, I-95 remains closed on:

·I-95 northbound from Exit 104 (Carmel Church) in Caroline County through Exit 148 (Quantico Marine Corps Base) at the Stafford/Prince William line

·I-95 southbound from Exit 152 (Dumfries) in Prince William County through Exit 136 (Route 17) in Stafford

Currently, crews are actively clearing traffic on I-95 northbound from exit 104 through exit 118 at multiple interchanges, and have cleared traffic from exit 118 (Thornburg) to exit 126 (Spotsylvania).

On I-95 southbound, crews have cleared most traffic on I-95 southbound from exit 150 to exit 133, and crews are removing the final disabled vehicles and tree debris in this segment.

As sections clear, I-95 is clearing ice and snow. Once the entire interstate is clear of vehicles, multiple plow trucks and motorgraders will make a sweep of the entire northbound and segment sections to ensure lanes are safe for travel before reopening. 

When Interstate 95 has reopened for travel, VDOT will update 511Virginia, issue a news release, post to social media channels and VDOT’s website.
