Drivers are asked to plan for major lane closures on the I-395 general purpose lanes in Virginia this weekend, from 10:00 p. m. Friday, July 27 through Sunday afternoon, July 29 for crews to safely work on several bridges between the Springfield Interchange and the Washington, D.C. line. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes, including the HOV lanes for through traffic, and to use caution and plan extra travel time if they must travel the corridor.
For this weekend’s work (July 27-29), drivers can expect:
  • Up to two southbound general purpose lanes may be closed at a time with at least two southbound general purpose lanes on I-395 remaining open during the day. Travel may be reduced to one open southbound general purpose lane overnight.
  • The HOV lanes will remain open southbound for through traffic during the work.
  • On northbound I-395, a single left-lane closure will also be in place for crews to access the work areas.
The work is the second of six consecutive weekends, weather permitting, scheduled for replacing bridge decks as part of the 395 Express Lanes project as well as rehabilitation of the bridge over Four Mile Run. The work is being coordinated concurrently to help minimize impacts to drivers.

The 395 Express Lanes, slated to open in late 2019, will extend the current lanes eight miles north to the D.C. line through a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation and Transurban. VDOT’s Four-Mile Run bridge project is expected to be complete in Fall 2018.
