Fredericksburg, Virginia — The Commonwealth Transportation Board has awarded a contract worth approximately $99.9 million to Shirley Contracting Co., of Lorton, Va., to build several projects in the Courthouse Road area of Stafford County.

One project will reconstruct the existing Interstate 95 interchange at exit 140, Courthouse Road, as a diverging diamond interchange. The intersection of Route 1 and Courthouse Road will be relocated to the south to align with Hospital Center Boulevard.

Another project will widen Courthouse Road west of I-95. Courthouse Road will be widened to four lanes between Cedar Lane and Ramoth Church Road/Winding Creek Road.

Commuter parking will be expanded by approximately 500 spaces at the interchange. An existing Park & Ride lot at exit 140 will be relocated east of I-95. The project will expand capacity to around 1,000 parking spaces, and will add dedicated pickup and drop-off areas for buses and carpools. The existing number of commuter parking spaces, 545 spaces, will be maintained during construction.

Construction will begin in spring 2017 and is scheduled to be completed in spring 2020.
