Study to tackle I-95 congestion

FREDRICKSBURG (AP) The congestion on Interstate 95 in Virginia can be nightmarish, and any solutions will be complex.

State transportation officials say they’ll study the issue to try to ease the pain for people traveling the highway between Fredericksburg and Washington, D.C., The Free-Lance Star reports.

Virginia Secretary of Transportation Shannon Valentine announced the study earlier this month at a Commonwealth Transportation Board meeting.

The board will conduct the study, with help from the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles and the Virginia State Police.

The study resulted from two resolutions this year sponsored by Del. Mark Cole, R-Spotsylvania, aiming to develop a strategic plan to deal with congestion along the interstate corridor.
