Interstate 95 commuters: Here's your sign!

Starting Friday, electronic signs posted overhead along the route between Fredericksburg and Prince William County will let drivers know how long their commute will take, using current traffic conditions.

The message will show the amount of time in minutes it took a motorist to travel between the two points, updated every five minutes, according to VDOT.
