RICHMOND, Va. — You will want to plan ahead before driving through Richmond this weekend. On Saturday, the Virginia Department of Transportation continues its work to restore the I-64 bridge over I-195 near mile marker 186 and the Bryan Park interchange.

Crews will close the ramp from I-64 east to I-95 north (Exit 187) on Saturday, October 17 from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Additionally, travel on the ramp from I-195 north to I-95 north will be reduced to one lane during the same timeframe.

Drivers should use caution in the area, as crews repair concrete bridge piers during the planned lane closures. Expect delays.
