Bad getaway delays on I-95 southbound

It’s getaway day and the getaway delays are works than usual southbound on I-95 this Friday.

VDOT reports that a truck fire and a brush fire forced them to close all of the southbound lanes at mile marker 137 in Stafford around 2:30 p.m. That’s just before Exit 136 for Centreport Parkway.

Traffic was getting through on the right shoulder but VDOT was recommending that drivers consider using east, west alternate routes to avoid southbound I-95.
