TRIANGLE, Va. -

Motorists along a section of southbound Interstate 95 in northern Virginia can expect multiple lane closures and detours at night this weekend.  

The Virginia Department of Transportation will close the lanes weather permitting to allow crews to lift steel beams into place for a new bridge over the southbound lanes near Exit 148 leading to the Marine Corps Base in Quantico.   

The closures will start at 9:30 p.m. on Friday through Sunday nights. Detours will be conducted onto U.S. Route 1 starting at 1 a.m. All lanes will be restored by 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and by 5 a.m. on Monday morning.
