RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) – Crews are scheduled to be on scene for the majority of the day closing lanes along 95. You can expect significant backups on 95 south due to construction. VDOT has already closed the left shoulder at the Boulevard. The left lane is due to be closed through 3pm. Delays are expected between Lakeside and Boulevard.Residual delays could be an issue at the Bryan Park.

You can avoid the area by using 295, 195, or Broad Street.

Crews will also be scheduled to close lanes on the Huguenot Bridge. Expect traffic to be stopped on either side of the bridge for up to 15 minutes today. Crews will be putting down concrete slabs for the new bridge and are expected on scene from 8:30am until 3pm. Use the Willey Bridge and Chippenham to avoid delays.

Both these construction projects will have lanes closed through Friday. I’ll keep you updated online and on air at CBS6.
