I-95 Express Lanes Construction Update

With construction on I-95 nearly 60% complete, 2014 is scheduled to be the final year on a project that will change the existing reversible HOV lanes in Virginia and extend them nine miles south. The existing 3 express lanes begin north of the Beltway and continue to Woodbridge, where they merge down to 2 lanes. By the end of this year, however, the 2 HOV lanes will continue past Dumfries Road all the way to Garrisonville Road in Stafford County. Vehicles with 3 or more occupants will be able to ride free of charge with an E-ZPass Flex and all others will have the option to use the lanes by paying a toll. Drivers can expect construction delays to continue throughout the year due to lane closures, temporary traffic stoppages and extended HOV Lane closures, but at least we’re in the home stretch!
