New Interstate 95 overpass, road widening east of I-95 in Spotsylvania County

FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has advertised a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from companies that may be interested in submitting bids for a design-build contract to build a project on Mudd Tavern Road in Spotsylvania County.

The RFQ asks that interested companies, known as offerors, submit Statements of Qualifications. Those responses will be evaluated by VDOT and the information will be used to determine the most qualified offerors. Those offerors will be invited to submit project proposals in response to VDOT’s Request for Proposals, which will be issued in spring 2016.

The project will replace the existing Interstate 95 overpass on Mudd Tavern Road, which is part of an interstate interchange at Exit 118/Thornburg. The current overpass has two travel lanes and narrow shoulders. VDOT seeks to bring the overpass in line with modern design standards and expand the bridge to accommodate any future widening of I-95. The replacement bridge will have four travel lanes, turn lanes and a wider shoulder.

Mudd Tavern Road will be widened to four lanes east of I-95. Traffic signals will be installed on Mudd Tavern Road at the I-95 northbound and southbound interstate ramps. A single roundabout will be built on Mudd Tavern Road east of the interstate, and the project will relocate Mallard Road's intersection with Mudd Tavern Road farther to the east.

The RFQ advertisement is posted on the Design-Build Request for Qualifications page on VDOT’s website:


VDOT’s 14-county Fredericksburg District includes the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford in the Fredericksburg area; Northumberland, Richmond, Lancaster and Westmoreland counties in the Northern Neck; Essex, Gloucester, King & Queen, King William, Mathews and Middlesex counties in the Middle Peninsula.
