Big traffic delays are expected this weekend in downtown Richmond. Here's why.

  • 0

Major delays are expected on Interstate 95 this weekend as crews replace a collapsed metal pipe.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is shutting down two lanes of southbound traffic near mile marker 77, a mile from the Arthur Ashe Boulevard.

The closures are planned to last until Monday morning.

The repairs are near North Lombardy Street. A VDOT spokesperson said installing a concrete pipe is expected to help eliminate flood conditions during heavy rain.

Alternative routes include Interstate 295 and Route 288 to reach destinations south of Richmond and Brook Road/Chamberlayne Road (Route 1/Route 301) for local destinations.
