A nearly $1 billion VDOT Mega-project financed, constructed, and operated under Virginia’s Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) from 2012-2014. The I-95 Express Lanes Project was divided into the following four segments, whereby major features of this project consisted of the following activities; Segment 1 (8.3-miles) from Garrisonville Road to Dumfries Road and consisting of a newly constructed center reversible section with seven new bridges; two newly constructed MSW wall flyovers, and a northbound slip ramp.

Full demolition of the two existing bridge superstructures including concrete decks, steel girders and abutments. Dynamic tolling added to center reversible lanes. Several sound walls constructed adjacent to residential areas. Considerable improvements made to existing storm water management facilities.
