Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board

Interstate 95 Corridor Improvement Plan

What's Being Done

The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB), supported by the Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI), the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), will study Interstate 95 (I-95) to initiate a data-driven study to develop the I-95 Corridor Plan which will (i) identify key problem areas along the corridor, and (ii) identify potential solutions and areas for additional review and study.

As directed in Senate Joint Resolution 276 and House Joint Resolution 581 during the 2019 General Assembly, the study team will identify targeted improvements and incident management strategies for the corridor.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) will receive briefings during the study time frame.

You are invited to provide input on the I-95 Corridor Improvement Plan online or at an in-person meeting, the second in a series of online feedback opportunities and meetings between now and later this fall. The purpose of this second series of meetings is to solicit input on potential targeted safety and congestion solutions along I-95 in the Commonwealth. There will be a brief presentation at the beginning of each meeting followed by time for the public to provide input on potential solutions to safety and congestion issues in the corridor. The Commonwealth Transportation Board will take your comments into consideration as it develops the Plan. Comments can be submitted via email to: VA95corridorplan@vdot.virginia.gov.

The Northern Virginia meeting will also provide information and opportunity for input on the I-95 Auxiliary Lane project between Route 123 and Prince William Parkway on I-95 south.

Feedback provided by members of communities, industries, and other stakeholders will be considered as team members study the corridor throughout the summer and prepare a draft plan report in the fall. The team and the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) plan to report findings to the General Assembly prior to the opening of Session in January 2020.
