The Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) is responsible for conducting the federally required metropolitan transportation-planning process for the metropolitan planning region. The region is comprised of the City of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties encompassing approximately 700 square miles with a population over 350,000.
Today, federal, state and other transportation funds are scarce; therefore, transportation investments must be allocated with careful planning to meet our region’s shared vision for its future. FAMPO examines future and investment alternatives, collaborates with state and local governments, interested parties and residents to develop short and long-term transportation plans that meet our region’s objectives. A multi-modal planning approach is used to assure a vibrant, intelligent and growing system of roads, rail, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
FAMPO invites you to browse our website to see what is planned to improve the transportation system and quality of life in our region. FAMPO values your input, and encourages you to become more involved in the transportation planning process.

Comment Period: September 23, 2015 – October 22, 2015
Brooke and Leeland VRE Rail Stations
The project would extend the existing station platforms at the Brooke and Leeland Road VRE Rail Stations in Stafford County to accommodate longer trains of eight cars in length.
Spotsylvania VRE Rail Station
The project would provide new passenger rail service in Spotsylvania County.
The planned I-95 J-Ramp would provide a new one-lane I-95 southbound off-ramp to Southpoint Parkway in Spotsylvania County to alleviate traffic congestion at the existing I-95 SB ramp terminal and US Rte 1.
