(Dinwiddie, VA ) Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc. announces they’ve been awarded the design-build contract for the I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project in Stafford County, Va.
The $101.6 million project, awarded by the Commonwealth Transportation Board, includes the design and construction for three new general purpose lanes for I-95 south as well as the converting of the three existing lanes into collector-distributer lanes. The goal of the project is to reduce congestion and improve the safety and efficiency of traffic in the Fredericksburg area by providing local traffic with additional lanes of travel and replace aging structures.
A new bridge will be built over Route 17 and the Rappahannock River parallel to the existing I-95 southbound bridges to carry the new lanes. In addition, the bridges that carry I-95 north and south over Route 17, both of which have been deemed structurally deficient, will be replaced.
Greg Andricos, president and COO of Wagman Heavy Civil states, “We have been pursuing this project with JMT for over a year and are elated to have the opportunity to work with our project team, our crews and our partners at VDOT to make this project a reality and deliver positive transportation improvements to the people of Stafford County. We are ready to get started!”
Construction on the project begins this summer and is scheduled to be complete in 2022. For more information on the project, please visit the Virginia Department of Transportation website.
