Give Feedback on I-95-Route 123 Interchange Study
Online presentation and survey open through April 19; learn more at virginiadot.org/WoodbridgeStars

WOODBRIDGE – The Virginia Department of Transportation is asking users of I-95 and Route 123 in Woodbridge to give feedback on potential improvements being evaluated for the I-95 and Route 123 interchange as identified in the I-95 Corridor Improvement Plan.

The study is assessing reconfiguring ramps, extending lanes, modifying and relocating traffic signals, access management, and pedestrian, bicycle and transit enhancements to improve traffic flow and safety. At the interchange, I-95 averages up to 232,000 vehicles a day and Route 123 (Gordon Boulevard) averages up to 71,000.

In lieu of an in-person presentation, VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback from home. View the presentation online to learn about draft alternatives that have been developed for the I-95 and Route 123 interchange, and give input and comments by taking the online survey through April 19.

The presentation and survey (also available in Spanish) and more study details are available at virginiadot.org/WoodbridgeStars. Comments can also be sent to meetingcomments@vdot.virginia.gov or to Ms. Angel Tao, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.

Please note that these studies do not set construction dates for any improvements, but develop proposed improvements that localities can pursue for funding.

Potential safety and operational improvements are also being studied for the adjacent intersections at Route 123 and Old Bridge Road, as well as Route 1 and Route 123. Opportunities to learn more and comment on these studies will be coming later this spring.

All of these studies are being completed through VDOT’s Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program that aims to identify cost-effective measures to improve safety and reduce congestion. The final studies are expected to be complete and posted online this summer.
