VDOT Meeting on Access Ramp from 395 to Seminary Road
VDOT's invitation to the meeting on August 25:
Interstate 395 is the most heavily traveled highway in the Washington, D.C. region and the
stretch of highway at Seminary Road carries more than 200,000 vehicles per day. To provide
easier and safer access, VDOT’s I-395 HOV Ramp project will:
1. Build a new reversible HOV ramp to Seminary Road flyover level;
2. Extend the auxiliary access lane on northbound I-395 from Duke Street to Seminary Road;
3. Widen the Seminary Road exit ramp from northbound I-395 to Seminary Road rotary level;
4. Construct a new pedestrian bridge adjacent to Seminary Road [Nan's note: plans have yet to be shown to SHA]; and
5. Improve signing, lighting, pavement markings, drainage and technologies that move traffic.
Join us to learn about:
· The current status of construction, the overall schedule and upcoming milestones;
· What you can expect in terms of construction impacts in the coming months; and
· The upcoming Seminary Road revised traffic pattern, which will place extended lane
closures on Seminary Road as needed to replace the existing superstructure and tie-in the
new HOV ramp and bridge.
A presentation will be made from 7:00 - 7:30 PM with a question and answer session
immediately following the presentation.
