Eastbound Duke Street to Close at I-395 Overpass Friday, May 8 - Sunday, May 10
Closure needed for bridge repairs; detour via I-395, Seminary Road

ALEXANDRIA - Motorists and area residents are advised that eastbound Duke Street (Route 236) at I-395 will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, May 8 until as late as 6 p.m. Sunday, May 10. Traffic on eastbound Duke Street will be detoured via northbound I-395, Seminary Road and southbound I-395 back to eastbound Duke Street (see map above). The eastbound Duke Street closure is needed to repair pavement as part of the overall 395 Express Lanes project. All work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled or extended if inclement conditions occur.

This weekend's extended work hours are possible due to recent lighter traffic volumes, and will allow crews to expedite completion of this work while minimizing the duration of impacts to area residents and drivers. Drivers should expect delays in this area and are asked to slow down, remain alert and watch for construction crews working on or near Duke Street. 

Work crews are following the most recent guidance from the federal and state government and are committed to the health and safety of all those who work and interact with the construction operation.

The eight-mile 395 Express Lanes opened on Nov. 17, 2019 and connect the 95 Express Lanes to Washington, D.C. Learn how the lanes work and plan your trip at www.ExpressLanes.com

The 395 Express Lanes are a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Transurban. See more details on the project and related lane closures.
