Travelers along I-95 should have a better idea of travel times thanks to new electronic signs.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is scheduled to take the wraps off electronic message signs today between Fredericksburg and Washington. The signs, which were introduced last August, will display estimated travel times, giving motorists the heads-up on what lies ahead with the option to seek alternate routes. 

Motorists will see travel times posted at three northbound and four southbound locations along the highway.

They will operate from 5 a.m to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.
