Project will improve condition of 6 bridges on I-95 in Stafford and Spotsylvania counties

FREDERICKSBURG – Construction is starting today on a $6.6 million project to rehabilitate six bridges on Interstate 95 in Stafford and Spotsylvania counties.

This two-year project will improve the condition of northbound and southbound bridges that carry I-95 traffic over Aquia Creek and Potomac Creek in Stafford, and the Ni River in Spotsylvania.

To lessen the impact on traffic, most lane closures on I-95 will occur overnight and during off-peak hours.

Work is starting first at the Ni River bridges, which are located at mile marker 121, south of Exit 126/Spotsylvania. This fall, motorists can expect periodic shoulder closures on the northbound and southbound Ni River bridges.

Construction will be underway at each bridge for four to five months. The entire project is expected to be completed in early November 2018.

Work is anticipated to occur on the following schedule:

  • Ni River bridges (mile marker 121): Fall 2016-Spring 2017
  • Potomac Creek bridges (mile marker 137, just north of Exit 136/Centreport Parkway): Fall 2017-Spring 2018
  • Aquia Creek bridges (mile marker 145, just north of Exit 143/Route 610): Summer 2018-Fall 2018

Work will include deck repairs, superstructure repairs and substructure and crack repairs. The project will also include installing dry rip rap, complete joint reconstruction, milling concrete decks, patching and installing a latex modified concrete on deck.
