About the Projects

I-95 Express Lanes

Fredericksburg Extension

This project will extend I-95 Express Lanes approximately 10 miles south of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) in Stafford County to the vicinity of Route 17 (I-95 Exit 133).

Two reversible high-occupancy toll lanes will be built in the existing median of I-95.

The lanes will connect to the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project and the I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing project.

Additional access to the I-95 Express Lanes will be added near the Route 17 and Route 630 (Courthouse Road) I-95 interchanges in Stafford, and near the Russell Road interchange at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Prince William County.

Full project funding for the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project was announced on January 10, 2018 by Governor Terry McAuliffe. Click here to read the news release about the announcement.

Transurban is leading construction of this design-build project.  You can find the company's brochure on how the Fredericksburg Extension of the Express Lanes will operate by clicking here. The design-build contractor is a joint venture between Branch Civil and Flatiron. For more information, please visit the Fredericksburg Extension project page on the Express Lanes website.
