VDOT TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING ON I-95, ROUTE 630 PROJECT IN STAFFORD COUNTY
Officials will share early details on preliminary design work for the reconstruction of the Interstate 95/Route 630 interchange

VDOT and consultant officials will be available from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, June 14 to share details on the project and the design process, which is currently underway. The public is invited to stop by to learn about the project, its history and purpose, and to review the project schedule, preliminary design, maps and project documents, and to ask questions.

VDOT also invites the public to submit written or oral comments at the meeting.

A brief presentation on the project will be delivered at 6 p.m.

A citizen information meeting on the project has been scheduled for:

Thursday, June 14
5-8 p.m.
Stafford County Government Center
ABC Conference Room
1300 Courthouse Road
Stafford, VA 22554

The existing diamond interchange at Exit 140 on I-95 at Route 630 cannot efficiently handle the current volume of traffic. In addition, Courthouse Road, which is two lanes, has reached a critical point at which future traffic will exceed its capacity.  
VDOT has hired a design consultant, CH2MHill, to create a detailed design for the interchange. This project will be a full reconstruction of the I-95/Route 630 interchange. The preliminary design concept indicates the interchange will be a modified split diamond with the Route 630 intersection at Route 1 relocated south to align with Hospital Center Boulevard.
A public hearing on the proposed project will be in late 2012.
Materials for the June 14 meeting will be posted online at www.VirginiaDOT.org the day of the meeting, including a comment sheet that can be mailed to VDOT:
