VDOT starts work on widening southbound I-95 between Gordon Blvd. and PW Parkway

Virginia Department of Transportation reports that work has started to create an auxiliary lane on southbound I-95 from Rt. 123 (Gordon Boulevard) to the Prince William Parkway (Rt. 294).

The project will convert about a mile and a half of the existing shoulder to a travel lane, from the end of the existing entrance ramp at Rt. 123 to the beginning of the exit ramp to the Prince William Parkway. The auxiliary lane will make it easier for drivers to merge into and out of traffic between the ramps and free up additional room for through-drivers.

The project will also:

Provide a new paved shoulder
Relocate noise walls as needed
Replace impacted roadway lighting
Install or upgrade guardrails
Build new retaining walls.

Southbound I-95 averages about 92,000 vehicles a day in this area.

10 p.m. Sunday, June 27 to 5 a.m. Monday, June 28: Right lane and center lane closed (the Route 123 and Prince William Parkway ramps will remain open)
