RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) - Crews will continue scheduled bridge work along 95 North and South overnight this week. Weather permitting. Expect lanes to be reduced. Traffic will only have one lane open in each direction between Belvidere Street (mile marker 76) and Boulevard (mile marker 78). This is all part of an ongoing project to the 95 southbound bridges over Robin Hood Road and Sherwood Avenue. You can expect detours and serious delays betweenn 8pm and 6am.

I-95 south traffic will merge onto the northbound bridge. Crews will also reduce traffic to one lane under the Robin Hood bridge and from 7 p.m.-6 a.m., Sherwood Avenue under 95 and the ramp from Robin Hood Road to I-95 south will be closed completely.

Commuters should avoid the area by using 295, 288 and the Powhite Parkway or 195 instead. Please avoid the area if possible.
