FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) invites the public to attend a “Pardon Our Dust” meeting on Wednesday, May 17, to learn more about upcoming construction to widen Route 630 (Courthouse Road) in Stafford County west of I-95, and to reconstruct the Exit 140 interchange on Interstate 95 as a diverging diamond.

The meeting will be held:

Wednesday, May 17

6-8 p.m.

Colonial Forge High School

Cafeteria

550 Courthouse Road

Stafford, VA 22554

A brief presentation on the project will be delivered at 6:15 p.m. and again at 7:15 p.m.

Stop by anytime between 6-8 p.m. to view maps of the project improvements and discuss questions with VDOT and contractor staff.

This project will reconstruct the existing interchange at Exit 140 as a diverging diamond interchange. The intersection of Courthouse Road and Route 1 will be moved south to align with Hospital Center Boulevard.

Courthouse Road will be widened from two lanes to four lanes west of I-95, between Cedar Lane and Ramoth Church Road/Winding Creek Road.

Construction will begin in summer 2017 to widen Courthouse Road west of I-95, with construction starting later in 2017 on elements of the interchange. All construction will be completed by July 31, 2020.

In October 2016, the Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $99.9 million design-build contract for the project to Shirley Contracting Company, LLC, of Lorton.

Additional project information is available online at www.VirginiaDOT.org on the project page.

“Pardon Our Dust” meeting materials will be posted online to the project page by Wednesday, May 17.
