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.
American Legion Road Overpass Replacement and Detour
I-95 overpasses on Truslow Road and American Legion Road in Stafford County are being 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 new Truslow Road overpass is complete and opened to traffic on April 9, 2021.
The American Legion Road overpass closed to traffic on April 4, 2022, and is under construction now. It is expected to reopen in January 2023.
Learn more about all of the major projects underway on I-95 in the Fredericksburg area through 2024 to build a better ride.
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
