Construction will begin in October 2017 to replace the I-95 overpass on Route 606 (Mudd Tavern Road), and make improvements to the Exit 118 interstate ramps, Mudd Tavern Road east of I-95 and Mallard Road.

The meeting will be held:

A brief presentation on the project will be delivered at 5:30 p.m.

Project information will also be available to view on future improvements proposed for Mudd Tavern Road from Interstate 95 to Route 1.

In December 2016, the Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $16.5 million design-build contract for the project to Shirley Contracting Company, LLC, of Lorton.
