Fredericksburg Extension

95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension Project Overview

The Virginia Department of Transportation-led project is proposed to extend the 95 Express Lanes by 10 miles from just south of Garrisonville Road to US 17 in Stafford County. Two reversible Express Lanes would be built in the existing median of I-95. New access points to Express Lanes would be built near the US 17 and VA 630 (Courthouse Road) I-95 interchanges in Stafford and at Russell Road near Marine Corps Base Quantico in Prince William County.

A new two-mile single-lane extension at the southern end of the 95 Express Lanes is opening this fall. ("two-mile single-lane extension" links to https://www.expresslanes.com/project-95-southern-improvements)

Design-Build Procurement

Transurban is currently in negotiations with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to extend the 95 Express Lanes for another ten miles -- from the current southern terminus near Route 610 (Exit 143 - Garrisonville Road) in the north to the vicinity of Route 17 (Exit 133 - Warrenton Road) in the south. When completed, this extension will operate together with the future 395 Express Lanes as a single, fully-integrated 95 Express Lanes facility between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers.

This project requires the procurement of a Design-Build Contractor for the following scope:

  • Ten miles of new two-lane reversible Express Lanes (with full shoulders) from the existing southern terminus at Route 610 to Route 17 North (Exit 143 to Exit 133), and approximately 1.5 miles of an additional reversible Express Lane within the existing 95 Express Lanes south of Garrisonville Road (Route 610).
  • New Express Lanes access points, including flyover ramps at the Route 17 terminus and Quantico area and a direct, reversible ramp connection at (Old) Courthouse Road.
  • New Express Lanes bridge structure at Potomac Creek, four flyover ramps and replacement of two existing bridges over I-95 at American Legion Road and Truslow Road.
  • Interface and direct connection with the Department’s Rappahannock River Crossing – Southbound Project, including a new general-purpose lane exit ramp at Route 17.
  • Electronic toll collection system (three new toll locations) including: toll gantries spanning the two reversible travel lanes and two shoulders at each location, tolling equipment, supportinginfrastructure (e.g., fiber optic communications network, power, controllers, cabinets, etc.) and associated computer systems and software updates.
  • Comprehensive traffic management system, including the following Intelligent Transportation Systems components: dynamic message signs, microwave vehicle detectors, closed circuit television cameras, automated incident detectors, and supporting infrastructure (e.g., fiber optic communications network, power, controllers, cabinets, etc.) and associated computer systems and software updates.
