Still trying to make my commute better. Most cite that only Route 1 and 95 crosses the Rappahannock river which I am sure is part of the huge bottlenecks on 95 and Route 1. However, looking at Google Maps, it looks like there are some other small roads that might cross over the Rapidian. I live a few miles West of 95 and I am willing to consider other options like Eleys Ford Road for example which looks like it goes over the Rapidian on Google Maps.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Kings Hwy. (route 3 business) crosses the Rappahannock through downtown Fredericksburg (near Ferry Farm). Not a highway-type road once you hit downtown, but it does cross the river at that point.

When I visit the lady friend, especially on the bike, I'll sometimes take the back roads to avoid I95. I've taken the crossing over near Kelly's Ford and eventually I'll hit 3. It looks like the road is 620 that crosses Mountain Run, which feeds into the Rapidan. She's near Lake of the Woods so it's not too out of the way. Definitely beats sitting on I95 some days.
