The Fredericksburg Extension project will extend the existing reversible 95 Express Lanes south by 16km (10 miles) along the I-95 median. The project includes new access points to the existing I-95 Express Lanes, construction of new ramps for access to Quantico and Old Courthouse Road (VDOT Park & Ride), with the addition of seven new bridges.
Extending the Express Lanes south will provide much needed relief from the existing bottlenecks along the I-95 corridor, improving reliability for commuters and freight, enhancing road safety, and setting up the regional economy for future growth.
The project will deliver:
- 66% increase in capacity on I-95 during peak periods
- New access points providing faster and easier access to Quantico, supporting 28,000 workers
- Additional 10 miles of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes and transit options, improving travel times
- Improvements and time savings to regular I-95 lanes
- 9,100 jobs and US$1.1 billion in economic activity during construction.
