Wagman Heavy Civil has won a $101.6m design-build contract for I-95 Southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project in Stafford County in Virginia, US.
The project involves the design and construction for three general purpose lanes for I-95 south as well as the conversion of the three existing lanes into collector-distributer lanes. The objective 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.
Under the terms of the contract, 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, which have been deemed structurally weak, will be replaced.
Construction will begin in summer and is scheduled to be complete in 2022.
Wagman Heavy Civil president and COO Greg Andricos said: “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!”
