Anyone headed north might want to avoid Interstate 95.

A tractor-trailer crash at mile marker 151 in Prince William has shut down all northbound lanes, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s 511. The crash happened shortly before 10 a.m.

A Stafford County Fire and Rescue alert suggests that drivers find an alternate route. That means U.S. 1, the primary alternate route, will probably be congested, too.

UPDATE: The accident scene has been cleared, according to a 12:40 p.m. alert from Stafford County Fire and Rescue.
