Contract awarded for Rappahannock River Crossing

A US$101.6m contract has been awarded for construction of the Interstate 95 southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project in Virginia.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board has awarded the contract Wagman Heavy Civil. The project is aimed at reducing I-95 congestion in the Fredericksburg area by providing local traffic with additional lanes to avoid the need to merge into the interstate’s general purpose lanes.

Wagman will build three new general purpose lanes for I-95 south stretching six miles in the current median of I-95. The three existing I-95 southbound lanes in the area will be converted to local traffic lanes, also known as collector-distributor lanes.

A new bridge will be built over the Rappahannock River parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridge to carry the new general purpose traffic lanes.

In addition, the bridges that carry I-95 north and south over Route 17 will be replaced as part of the project.

Construction will begin this summer for completion in 2022.
