I-95 Southbound Collector-Distributor Lanes − Rappahannock River Crossing
|I-95 Southbound between Exit 130 (Route 3) and Exit 133 (Route 17)|
Project at a Glance
About the Project
The I-95 Rappahannock River Crossing Southbound project will add 2 collector-distributor lanes parallel to Interstate 95 southbound between Exit 133 (Route 17) in Stafford County and Exit 130 (Route 3) in the City of Fredericksburg.
A new I-95 southbound bridge will be built over the Rappahannock River to carry the new collector-distributor lanes. The new bridge will be built parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridge at the Rappahannock River.
The project seeks to reduce I-95 congestion at Fredericksburg by providing local traffic with an additional route to travel between Route 17 and Route 3 without merging into the interstate's general purpose lanes.
The existing I-95 interchanges at Route 17 and Route 3 will also be modified, as well as ramps to the Safety Rest Area and Virginia Welcome Center.
This Smart Scale project is fully funded through construction in the FY2017-2022 Six-Year Improvement Program.
