Transportation Project Update: I-95 Southbound Lanes from Exit 133 to Exit 130
On May 15th, at the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) Policy Committee meeting, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) revealed new design plans for the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing Project, between Exit 133 and Exit 130. Previously the design included braided ramps and the development of new collector/distributor lanes to the right of the current I-95 Southbound lanes. The new design would make the current three I-95 lanes the new collector/distributor lanes and construct three new general purpose lanes to the left of the current I-95 lanes. The explanation for the change was due to concerns voiced at public comment meetings.
Additional information about this project can be found on the FAMPO website here.
