UPDATE: Two lanes of northbound I-95 have reopened, the Stafford County Sheriff's Office said at 4:46 p.m. on Tuesday.

STAFFORD, Va. -- All northbound lanes of Interstate 95 were closed near mile marker 134 on Tuesday afternoon after a dump truck got stuck underneath the Truslow overpass.

"I-95 northbound traffic is being detoured at exit 133, where motorists can access Route 17 northbound or Route 17 Business southbound to Route 1," a VDOT spokesperson wrote in an email. "A single northbound lane was briefly reopened to clear the queue of vehicles stopped between exit 133 and the Truslow Road overpass. Once the queue is clear, crews will begin removal of the truck at the overpass, and further inspection of the structure can continue."

Drivers headed north on I-95 should use exit 104 (Carmel Church) to Route 207 northbound and Route 301 northbound as an alternate route.

Travelers can expect heavy congestion on Route 1 northbound and other arterial routes in the Fredericksburg area.
