PUBLIC INVITED TO LEARN ABOUT PLANS TO EXTEND SOUTHERN END OF I-95 EXPRESS LANES IN STAFFORD
Public Information Meeting scheduled for Feb. 17

FAIRFAX - The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a Public Information Meeting for the I-95 Express Lanes Southern Terminus Extension project on Wednesday, February 17 from 6-8 p.m. at H.H. Poole Middle School in Stafford. The proposed project involves extending the southern terminus of the 95 Express Lanes by approximately two miles with a reversible single lane that splits into northbound and southbound merge ramps. A new southbound end point will carry Express Lanes traffic past Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) and back into the I-95 southbound regular lanes. A new left entry from northbound I-95 will be located south of Route 610. Improvements are intended to lessen congestion at the entrance and exit points of the 95 Express Lanes in Stafford.

The public is invited to attend the Public Information Meeting to learn more about the proposed improvements, provide input and discuss any questions with VDOT and project staff. Details are:
