The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has decided to move the bridge deck repairs on I-95 in Dale City for the second time.
Originally slated for May 5-8, VDOT had moved the repair work to May 12-15, but decided to move that date to May 19-22.
During the construction work on the bridge deck, lanes will be closed and VDOT projects that delays will be extensive.
More on the reasoning for the emergency repairs, from our earlier story.
More on the lane closures, from VDOT:
Southbound I-95 will be reduced from three to two lanes over Neabsco Creek (mile marker 156) from 9 p.m. Saturday, April 29 to 6 a.m. Monday, May 1, and again from 10 p.m. Friday, May 19 to 6 a.m. Monday, May 22.
Ramps from eastbound and westbound Dale Boulevard to southbound I-95 will also be closed to all except emergency vehicles.
The southbound car-only safety rest area will also be closed.
