About the Project
This project seeks to reduce Interstate 95 congestion at Fredericksburg by providing local traffic with an additional route to travel between Route 17 and Route 3 without merging into the interstate's general purpose lanes.
Between just north of Exit 133 (Route 17) in Stafford County and just south of Exit 130 (Route 3) in the City of Fredericksburg, three new I-95 southbound lanes will be constructed in the current median of I-95 for through traffic.
The three existing I-95 southbound lanes from north of Exit 133 to south of Exit 130 will be converted to three southbound lanes for local traffic.
The project will build an additional bridge over the Rappahannock River, parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridge, to carry the new lanes for through traffic.
The existing I-95 interchanges at Route 17 and Route 3 will also be modified, as well as ramps to the Safety Rest Area and Virginia Welcome Center.
This Smart Scale project is fully funded through construction in the FY2017-2022 Six-Year Improvement Program.
