I-95 Phase 2 Corridor Study  

I-95 Corridor Evaluation – Overview and Phase 2 Scope of Work

In June 2016, FAMPO staff worked with Michael Baker International to complete the I-95 Corridor Study Phase I which evaluated congestion problems between milepoint 145 and 125. In light of new congestion problems on I-95 associated with the extension of the Express Lanes to Exit 143, existing congestion problems on I-95 associated with the Rappahannock River Crossings, and several planned improvements along the I-95 corridor that could significantly changes existing traffic behavior, the FAMPO Policy Committee authorized the I-95 Corridor Phase 2 multimodal study to analyze congestion problems on I-95 between mile point 148 and mile point 98 and possible solutions in time for the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan effort and the next round of Smart Scale project applications in the summer of 2018.  Phase 2 will also study potential opportunities for improvements with VRE/Amtrack and additional areas which could help alleviate congestion along the I-95 corridor. There are two components of this study which include a transit/TDM element and a highway element.

I-95 Transit/Transportation Demand Management

The purpose of this study is to identify what transit and TDM measures are necessary to accommodate this growth. A major component of the study is to identify the market for a publicly-operated commuter bus system in the Region to supplement its existing transit and TDM services.
