Springfield interchange improvement project
Springfield interchange before and after
Scheduled major milestones, from the Springfield Interchange Improvement Project website in January, Shirley Contracting Corporation was the prime contractor on Phase 4. The 4-lane Commerce Street crosses I in the right of the photo. At the time, I was expected to go through the District of Columbia. Surprisingly and fortunately, during the construction between and , the project area didn't see any marked increase in traffic congestion, likely because drivers modified their travel patterns accordingly, and because of VDOT's congestion management plan detailed above. The major part of Phase 4 was a 4,ft bridge that links I to I, allowing traffic heading west on the former to merge with southbound traffic on the latter. The project was one of the largest highway construction projects in the U. Working closely with VDOT, the contractor committed to a recovery schedule with revised completion dates that would bring the project back on schedule by June
The ramp carrying traffic from I north to I north is no longer off this roadway, but rather is the ramp to the right. Virginia Railway Express ridership continued to grow.

The remaining lanes on the ramps to Route from the Inner Loop and from southbound I opened at the same time as the reopening of the original Outer Loop ramp now signed as Exit B. The entrance to the new bridge is located about a half-mile prior to the exit motorists currently use.
