I-95 Express Lanes Project Gets Underway

i95-expressThe 95 Express Lanes Project will start daytime pile driving on or about December 17, in the median of I-95 at Joplin Road in Prince William County.

Daytime closures will be in place on Joplin Road at I-95 and two-way traffic will be directed by flaggers.  This work is to support the foundations of the new 95 Express Lanes bridge that will run above Joplin Road in the median of Interstate 95.

Pile driving will take place Monday through Saturday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Daytime lane closures will be in place on Joplin Road to allow for this work. Motorists should expect delays in this area. Due to the holiday, closures are suspended Dec. 24 and 25, and until noon on the 26th. Review the Joplin Road Pile Driving Fact Sheet.

Extending 29 miles from Edsall Road (Rt. 648) to Garrisonville Road (Rt. 610), the 95 Express Lanes will provide new choices, added capacity and improve the performance of the existing HOV system.  The Project is scheduled for completion in early 2015.  Read more about the 95 Express Lanes Project.
