A 16km stretch of I-95 in Virginia is opening partially for drivers, adding tolled expressed lanes along the route. Opening this section will reduce congestion on the Interstate 95 corridor through Stafford County and Fredericksburg, connecting the region to Northern Virginia and Washington, DC according to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

The construction work commenced in 2019 and was intended to be complete by 2022, but was subject to delays due to a number of reasons. The section of the route is operated by Transurban North America. Costing US$670 million the project is being carried out by a joint venture that comprises Branch Civil and Flatiron Construction.

The extension will continue the 95 Express Lanes from the current terminus just south of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) to near Route 17 (Warrenton Road) in Stafford County.
