(York, Pa.) Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc., announces the new I-95 Southbound bridge over the Rappahannock River in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is open to traffic ahead of schedule. The newly constructed I-95 Southbound corridor offers designated lanes for both local traffic and thru traffic looking to bypass vehicles entering and exiting I-95 between Rte. 17 and Rte. 3. The new bridge and additional lanes aim to ease congestion in this highly traveled area.
“After three and a half years of teamwork, Wagman Heavy Civil safely opened the new SB I-95 GP and CD lanes in Fredericksburg achieving the project early completion interim milestone. All four bridges constructed by Wagman, including the 1,200 FT long major structure crossing the Rappahannock River are now under traffic,” said Greg Andricos, President and COO of Wagman Heavy Civil. He continues, “This was made possible through a shared sense of urgency and active partnership with VDOT and our entire Design-Build Team.”
Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc. performed this construction under a $115 million design-build contract with VDOT. The project is part of the Atlantic Gateway group of projects, which include improvements to transportation within the I-95 corridor including a $107 million design-build contract to add similar capacity to I-95 Northbound in Fredericksburg, which is also being performed by Wagman.
