Key Spotsylvania projects in the plan include the State Route 3 widening and the Spotsylvania Courthouse bypass, both of which are currently under construction.

Spotsylvania's third-track and Virginia Railway Express station projects are also included in the six-year plan.

The third-track project is estimated to cost $32 million. The station will cost $3.425 million. The projects are being paid for by VRE, CSX and Spotsylvania, as well as state and federal grants.

Fredericksburg also has several projects in the state's six-year plan, including the canal bridge replacement on Fall Hill Avenue and the I-95 bridge replacement on the same road.

The canal bridge project will cost up to $3 million.

Work is slated to begin in January and will run through November. Fall Hill will be closed to through traffic during the project.

The I-95 bridge project, with an estimated $36.6 million price tag, is still in the design phase.

Also during Wednesday's meeting, the CTB approved a $4.2 billion fiscal 2013 budget for the Virginia Department of Transportation.
