This project will extend I-95 Express Lanes approximately 10 miles south of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) in Stafford County to the vicinity of Route 17 (I-95 Exit 133).

Two reversible high-occupancy toll lanes will be built in the existing median of I-95.

The lanes will connect to the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project and the I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing project.

Additional access to the I-95 Express Lanes will be added near the Route 17 and Route 630 (Courthouse Road) I-95 interchanges in Stafford, and near the Russell Road interchange at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Prince William County.

Transurban is leading construction of this design-build project. You can find the company's brochure about how the Fredericksburg Extension Express Lanes will operate by clicking here. The design-build contractor is a joint venture between Branch Civil and Flatiron. For more information, please visit the Fredericksburg Extension project page on the Express Lanes website.

Truslow Road Overpass Replacement and Detour, Stafford County

American Legion Road Overpass Replacement and Detour, Stafford County

I-95 overpasses on Truslow Road and American Legion Road in Stafford County will be replaced with new overpasses as part of this Express Lanes project. New bridges must be built to accommodate construction of two reversible Express Lanes in the I-95 median. 

The Truslow Road I-95 overpass closed to through traffic on Monday, January 27, 2020.

Truslow Road is closed to through traffic at the overpass during reconstruction. The new overpass was estimated to reopen in fall 2020. This schedule has been extended, with the road and overpass now anticipated to reopen in winter 2020/2021.

Once the new Truslow Road overpass opens, construction will begin to replace the American Legion Road overpass. American Legion Road is anticipated to close to traffic with a detour route in winter 2021 and remain closed for approximately nine months during reconstruction.
