About the Project

This project would 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).

The facility is proposed to connect to the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project, and if funded in the future, the I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing project.

Additional access and operational improvements along the existing I-95 Express Lanes corridor in Prince William County are also being reviewed.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board voted in January 2017 to include this project in the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP), allowing preliminary work to proceed to study this project concept.

Tasks underway through summer 2017 will include gathering data for a Revised Environmental Assessment (EA), collecting traffic data and performing technical studies.

Project funding for the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension was included in the Atlantic Gateway grant application. Virginia received a $165 million FASTLANE grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2016 for Atlantic Gateway, a $1.4 billion package of highway, transit and rail projects in the I-95 corridor.
