I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing

This project seeks to reduce I-95 southbound congestion at Fredericksburg by:

  • Providing local traffic with an additional route to travel between Route 17 and Route 3 without merging into the interstate's general purpose lanes
  • Doubling the I-95 southbound capacity in the area with three new lanes
  • Ramp modifications at the Exit 133 and Exit 130 interchanges
  • Replaces existing I-95 bridges over Route 17 that are structurally deficient, and improves height restrictions on Route 17 under I-95

The Virginia Department of Transportation has several projects underway designed to unlock gridlock on Interstate 95 in Fredericksburg.
