FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- The Virginia Department of Transportation announced on Tuesday night that Interstate 95 southbound and northbound is open after being closed for emergency response for most of the day. All disabled vehicles have been removed from the interstate.
VDOT announced earlier on Tuesday just after 5 p.m. that no more drivers are stranded on Interstate 95.
This announcement comes after stunning aerial images showing massive backups on the highway.
UPDATE: There are no people stranded still on I-95. Less than 20 vehicles left to be removed from the interstate before plow trains will come through to remove snow and ice from the travel lanes.— VDOT Fredericksburg (@VaDOTFRED) January 4, 2022
Drivers who were trapped also captured footage of the traffic, noting that they were able to move just small distances over long periods of time.
