Public hearing on proposed interchange and overpass design will be held Thursday, April 27 at Riverview Elementary

FREDERICKSBURG – The public is invited to attend a design public hearing next week to learn more about a proposed design to improve the Interstate 95 and Route 606 (Mudd Tavern Road) interchange at Exit 118 in the Thornburg area of Spotsylvania County.  

The proposed design is an offset diamond interchange, which seeks to improve traffic flow at Exit 118 while minimizing the amount of right of way needed to build the project. The proposed concept also limits traffic impacts on Route 606 during construction.

This project will build a new I-95 overpass on Mudd Tavern Road and provide improvements to interstate ramps, Mudd Tavern Road east of I-95 and Mallard Road.

The design public hearing will be held:

Thursday, April 27

5-7 p.m.                                                             

Riverview Elementary School

7001 North Roxbury Mill Road

Spotsylvania, VA 22551

Stop by anytime between 5-7 p.m. to review displays, proposed plans, and to discuss questions with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and contractor staff. No formal presentation will be given at the public hearing.

Written and oral comments will be accepted at the public hearing, and afterward through Monday, May 8.

Comments may be mailed to Mr. Robert Ridgell, VDOT Area Construction Engineer, 87 Deacon Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22405.

Comments may also be emailed to Robert.Ridgell@VDOT.Virginia.Gov. Please reference “Rt. 606 (Mudd Tavern Road) Improvements/I-95 Bridge Replacement” in the subject line.
