New pavement markings have been added at six entry points to the 495 Express Lanes in Virginia in an attempt to make it easier for drivers to choose the proper lane, whether entering the E-ZPass-only Express Lanes or staying on the regular Capital Beltway travel lanes.
Toll gantries are slowly appearing above drivers using the existing HOV lanes, soon to be express lanes, along both Interstate 95 and 395. But tolling won't begin just yet.
Lane closures along two Virginia interstates and Yellow Line closures will delay the flow of vehicle and transit traffic across the Potomac.
It's official: The I-95 Express Lanes project has hit the halfway mark.
After being open for about 10 months, commuters can give a report card on the I-495 Express Lanes.
If you travel I-95 in Virginia, you've seen construction on the new express lanes rising fast. It turns out, they could open earlier than expected.
On Monday, the Virginia Department of Transportation will change the traffic flow in the existing High Occupancy Vehicle lanes, cutting off northbound traffic at 10 a.m., instead of 11 a.m., and opening southbound traffic at noon instead of 1 p.m.
Drivers should add at least an extra 25 minutes to their commutes, if they travel Interstate 95 South near Quantico this weekend.
