Road work this week focused in Stafford

MORE: See all local transportation news

New road work this week is isolated to Stafford County. Also of note is the news that there will be no more weekend daytime HOV closures until after the new year.

In Stafford, bridge inspections on the Interstate 95 bridge over U.S. 17 will lead to a lane closure this week. Also, there will be overnight lane closures on the Falmouth Bridge while crews repair an overhead sign. In North Stafford, slope work on Coal Landing Road will cause some delays.

For more details, see VDOT’s Hot Spots and Megaproject’s I-95 express lanes updates below.
