VDOT is having a Citizen Information Meeting to discuss the Interstate 95 Southbound Collector Distributor Lanes – Rappahannock River Crossing. This affects the City of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties.

Wednesday, June 28 2017, 5-7 p.m.
Fredericksburg Hospitality House & Conference Center
Fredericksburg Room
2801 Plank Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22401

Come see a revised design for the I-95 southbound collector distributor lanes from Exit 133 (Route 17) in Stafford County to Exit 130 (Route 3) in the City of Fredericksburg.

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 south of Exit 130 at Route 3 in Spotsylvania.

The three existing I-95 southbound lanes from north of Exit 133 to south of Exit 130 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.
