(York, Pa.) Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc. has completed the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project in Fredericksburg, Virginia, on time and on budget.
This $113M design-build project for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) relieves congestion on a highly traveled portion of I-95 near the Rappahannock River, with nearly 150,000 vehicles traveling on it each day.
The 6.4-mile-long project, which began in the summer of 2018, included the design, permitting and construction of three new general-purpose lanes for I-95 southbound and conversion of the three existing lanes to collector-distributer lanes. In addition, new bridges were built over Route 17 and the Rappahannock River parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridges to carry the new lanes.
“Wagman made a commitment to VDOT to deliver this critical project by May 2022, sixty days earlier than originally anticipated,” comments Greg Andricos, president and coo of Wagman Heavy Civil. He continues, “Through active partnership and collaboration with VDOT and all of our project partners, we achieved this goal. I am incredibly proud of the hard work and accomplishments made by this team.”
Wagman Heavy Civil is also the contractor for the $109M I-95 Northbound Rappahannock River Crossing design-build project. Construction on the northbound lanes began in fall 2020 and is expected to be complete in the spring of 2024.
