Everyday 430,000 vehicles pass through the Springfield Interchange, where I-95, 395 and 495 come together. During a two-year study, the interchange logged 179 accidents - making it the most dangerous spot on the 64-mile Capital Beltway. To improve traffic flow, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is preparing to rebuild the interchange making it safer for commuters and long-distance travelers. The improvement project will take up to 8 years to complete. The project consists of building more than 50 bridges and widening I-95 to 24 lanes between the Beltway and Franconia Road.
