Public viewing for new river crossing design
The public is invited to attend a citizen information meeting next week to learn more about the revised design for the Interstate 95 southbound collector distributor lanes – Rappahannock River Crossing project between Exit 133 (Route 17) in Stafford County and Exit 130 (Route 3) in the City of Fredericksburg.
The citizen information meeting will be held:
Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Fredericksburg Hospitality House & Conference Center
2801 Plank Road (Central Park)
Fredericksburg, VA 22401
A brief presentation will be delivered at 6 p.m.
The revised design includes construction of three new I-95 southbound lanes in the current median of I-95 for through traffic. The new through traffic lanes would be built from north of Exit 133 at Route 17 in Stafford to just south of Exit 130 at Route 3 in Spotsylvania.
The three existing I-95 southbound lanes in this area would be converted to lanes for local traffic, also known as collector distributor lanes.
The project would require construction of a new crossing of the Rappahannock River, parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridge, to carry the new lanes for through traffic.
The project seeks to reduce I-95 congestion in the Fredericksburg area by providing local traffic with an additional route to travel between Route 17 and Route 3 without merging into the interstate’s through lanes.
Stop by anytime between 5-7 p.m. on June 28 to review displays, proposed plans, and discuss questions with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) staff.
