The last weekend of bridge deck repair work on I-95 in Dale City has been moved from May 5-8 to May 12-15.
According to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the rescheduling of the project is due to expected inclement weather.
“The bridge, originally built in 1963, has been regularly inspected and maintained, and remains safe, but is in urgent need of large-scale repairs to sections of the deck. The needed work will include saw-cutting and jackhammering out three bridge sections, the largest being 10 feet by 33 feet, replacing the reinforcing rebar, and pouring new concrete. Work will affect the bridge deck, joint, and abutment,” stated VDOT.
The work is expected to cause massive delays on I-95 during the closure, and VDOT is urging drivers to use alternative routes.
