Proposed general purpose lane is a construction option on upcoming interchange and widening project in Courthouse Road area

FREDERICKSBURG – The public is invited to attend a design public hearing next week to learn more about a proposed fourth travel lane on Interstate 95 southbound in Stafford County.

Construction of a fourth travel lane on I-95 would be built between I-95 mile marker 143 and 2,250 feet south of a new, relocated I-95 interchange at exit 140 (Courthouse Road).

This proposed project is a construction option on the existing I-95/Route 630 (Courthouse Road) interchange relocation and Route 630 (Courthouse Road) widening project. Design and construction of a fourth I-95 travel lane will be contingent on available funding after bids are submitted and reviewed.

Construction is anticipated to occur within the existing right-of-way. As part of this project, new sound walls are proposed along the general purpose lanes within VDOT right-of-way.

The design public hearing will be held:
