Wagman Heavy Civil awarded $101.6M contract for I-95 bridge
York County-based Wagman Heavy Civil Inc., part of Wagman Inc., has secured a large design-build contract for a bridge project in northern Virginia.
Wagman has been awarded the contract for the Interstate 95 southbound Rappahannock River Crossing project in Stafford County, Va., one of the fastest-growing areas in the Fredericksburg region.
The $101.6 million project includes the design and construction of three new general purpose lanes for I-95 south, as well as converting three existing lanes into collector lanes. The project will help reduce congestion and improve traffic safety and efficiency, officials said.
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, both deemed structurally deficient, will be replaced, according to Wagman.
Construction on the project is slated to begin this summer, with completion expected in 2022.
