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 Complete, 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 and reopened to traffic on Friday, April 9.
A date has not been set yet for when construction will begin to replace the American Legion Road overpass.
Major travel delays are anticipated on Interstate 95 southbound in the Fredericksburg area from 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 through 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Lane closures are needed for 19 consecutive hours of milling, paving and lane striping to shift southbound traffic onto a new interstate overpass that spans Route 17 in Stafford County, just north of the Rappahannock River bridge.
I-95 southbound will be reduced to a single lane near Exit 133 (Route 17) for most of this work zone as crews shift traffic for the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project.
While this shift is underway, all I-95 southbound traffic will be stopped for 30-minute intervals between midnight and 3 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14, near mile marker 134, north of Exit 133. Traffic will be stopped for motorist safety while crews to use a crane to place bridge beams for a new Route 652 (Truslow Road) overpass. This overpass construction is part of the Express lanes extension.
I-95 southbound travelers are strongly encouraged to choose an alternate route to avoid delays, especially for destinations outside the Fredericksburg area.
The project will:
· Reduce congestion and accommodate travel demand more efficiently
· Provide greater reliability of travel times on I-95 Express Lanes
· Expand travel choices by increasing the attractiveness and utility of ridesharing and transit usage, while also providing an option for single- and double-occupant vehicles to bypass congested conditions
