Starting Monday, the I-95 southbound slip ramp to Lorton will close permanently.
According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, "In the Springfield area, motorists will transition from the southbound I-95 HOV lanes to the general purpose lanes using the left exit ramp marked: Route 286 Fairfax County Parkway/Newington/Ft. Belvoir. The next opportunity to exit the southbound HOV lanes will be at Route 1, Exit 161."

The exit is closing as part of the ongoing 95 Express Lanes construction project that could make travel faster on 95 throughout Northern Virginia. .
