Work to continue on I-95 next week

Crews will continue working on an eroded area along Interstate 95 in the Quantico area next week.

The right southbound lane will be closed while crews repair the road’s slope just south of exit 148 at the Quantico Marine Corps base, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Work will  be done from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Materials being used for the work are temperature sensitive, requiring warmer weather, which is why the work is being done during the day, said VDOT’s Kelly Hannon.

The problem started in an area near the guardrails that was eroding and VDOT didn’t want to take the chance of the erosion spreading to the roadway.
