This project will extend I-95 Express Lanes approximately 10 miles south of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) in Stafford County to the vicinity of Route 17 (I-95 Exit 133).
Two reversible high-occupancy toll lanes will be built in the existing median of I-95.
The lanes will connect to the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project and the I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing project.
Additional access to the I-95 Express Lanes will be added near the Route 17 and Route 630 (Courthouse Road) I-95 interchanges in Stafford, and near the Russell Road interchange at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Prince William County.
Full project funding for the I-95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension project was announced on January 10, 2018 by Governor Terry McAuliffe. Click here to read the news release about the announcement.

The project will:
· Reduce congestion and accommodate travel demand more efficiently
