Starting Friday night at 11 p.m., all HOV lanes along 395/95 will shut down for the weekend. As part of the Virginia Megaproject, drivers will be asked to stay on the main line between the District and Dumfries.

Overnight closures could add to the confusion over the weekend. 95 South is scheduled to have all lanes closed between Marine Corps Base Quantico (mile marker 148) to Garrisonville (mile marker 143). Closures will start at 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. With all lanes closing between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

Traffic will be detoured onto Route 1 during this time. Avoid the area during peak closures if possible.

Weekend closures are scheduled to run through mid-November
