About the Project

This is a design-build project, which will replace a 2-lane bridge at Interstate 95 and widen Fall Hill Avenue in the City of Fredericksburg.


The new bridge will create space underneath to accommodate the future widening of I-95.


The project creates a new connector route between Route 1 and Route 3 in Fredericksburg, and improves direct access to Mary Washington Hospital.


Fall Hill Avenue will be widened to four lanes from Briscoe Lane to Mary Washington Boulevard. 


Mary Washington Boulevard will be extended  to meet Fall Hill Avenue, intersecting in a single-lane roundabout. 


The extension provides new access to Route 1 from Fall Hill Avenue.


Key points:

• The bridge will have 4 travel lanes, a shared-use path on the northern side, and a sidewalk on the southern side. 
• City of Fredericksburg is overseeing replacement of adjacent Fall Hill Avenue bridge at the Rappahannock Canal, which will be finished by October 31, 2014.
• Additional design work is expected from February-November 2014, with Right-of-Way acquisition from November 2014-July 2015.
