Fredericksburg Extension

95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension Project Overview

95 Fredericksburg Extension Map


The Fredericksburg Extension (Fred Ex) project will extend the existing 95 Express Lanes south another 10 miles along the I-95 median. The extension will span from the current end of the Lanes, just past Route 610 in Stafford County, to the vicinity of Route 17.

The project will include new access points to the existing 95 Express Lanes, construction of new ramps for access to Quantico and Old Courthouse Road, and the addition of seven new bridges.

When completed, the extension will operate together with the future 395 Express Lanes as a single, fully-integrated Express Lanes corridor between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers.

The design-build procurement process launched in January 2018 with construction expected to begin in early 2019. Financial close on the $565 million project is scheduled for the first half of 2019.

The extension is scheduled to open to travelers in late 2022.

Additional information is available on the Virginia Department of Transportation's project webpage.


Extending the Express Lanes south will provide much needed relief from congestion along the I-95 corridor, improve reliability for commuters and freight, enhance road safety and set up the regional economy for future growth.

The project will deliver:

  • A 66 percent increase in capacity on I-95 during rush hour periods
  • New access points providing faster and easier access to Quantico and the area's 28,000 workers
  • An additional 10 miles of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes and transit options, improving travel times and delivering new travel choices
  • Improvements and time savings to regular I-95 lanes adjacent to the express lanes
  • 9,100 jobs and $1.1 billion in economic activity during construction
