Michelle Shropshire, Assistant District Administrator for Preliminary Engineering
Kelly Hannon, Communications Manager
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.
VDOT has hired a design consultant, CH2MHill, to create a detailed design for the interchange.
• This project will be a full reconstruction of the I-95/Route 630 interchange (Exit 140/Courthouse Road).
• The proposed interchange will be a modified split diamond with the Route 630 intersection at Route 1 relocated south to align with Hospital Center 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 alternative to be built was advanced because it balanced cost, traffic and operational efficiency, and minimized impacts to the environment and surrounding properties.
