CTB AWARDS CONTRACT FOR I-95, ROUTE 606 PROJECT IN SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY
Improvements include a new Mudd Tavern Road overpass at I-95, and interstate ramp and road improvements at Exit 118/Thornburg
FREDERICKSBURG – The Commonwealth Transportation Board has awarded a contract worth approximately $16.5 million to Shirley Contracting Co., of Lorton, Va., to build a new Interstate 95 overpass on Route 606 (Mudd Tavern Road) in Spotsylvania County, and provide improvements to interstate ramps, Mudd Tavern Road east of I-95 and Mallard Road.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in September 2019.
As part of its design-build proposal, Shirley Contracting created a modified design concept that improves traffic flow at the Exit 118 interchange on I-95 while minimizing the amount of right of way needed to build the project. The proposed concept also limits traffic impacts on Route 606 during construction.
A rendering of the proposed design, an offset diamond interchange, is available online at www.VirginiaDOT.org on the Route 606 project page:
The proposed design is subject to approval by the Federal Highway Administration. An additional public hearing will also be scheduled and held during 2017 to solicit public comment on the proposal.
