Project Background

This work is part of the $6.6 million project to rehabilitate six bridges on I-95 in Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. The project currently underway will improve the condition of northbound and southbound bridges that carry I-95 traffic over the Ni River in Spotsylvania, and over Aquia Creek and Potomac Creek in Stafford County.

Construction started last fall to improve the condition of the bridges over the Ni River and is expected to conclude at the end of May.

Crews will then work on the Potomac Creek bridges, which are located at mile marker 137, just north of Exit 136/Centreport Parkway) before moving to the Aquia Creek bridges located at mile marker 145 just north of Exit 143/Route 610 in Stafford County.

Construction will be underway at each bridge for four to five months. The entire project is expected to be completed in early November 2018.
