About the Project

The existing diamond interchange at Exit 140 (Stafford County) on Interstate 95 at Route 630 (Courthouse Road) cannot efficiently handle the current volume of traffic. 

In addition, Courthouse Road, which is two lanes, has reached a critical point at which future traffic will exceed its capacity.  

This project will involve a full reconstruction of the I-95/Route 630 interchange (Exit 140/Courthouse Road).

The reconstructed interchange will be a modified split diamond with the Route 630 intersection at Route 1 relocated south to align with Hospital Boulevard.

An Interchange Modification Report (IMR) was prepared and submitted to the Federal Highway Administration. The FHWA approved the IMR in 2011. 

This IMR started with 9 alternatives for the interchange reconstruction, including a no-build alternative, and examined each one based on technical and operational effectiveness.

The chosen alternative to be built was advanced because it balanced cost, traffic and operational efficiency, and minimized impacts to the environment and surrounding properties.
