New section of 95 Express Lanes in N.Va. to open Aug. 17


Toll lanes will open Aug. 17 on 10 miles of Interstate 95 in Northern Virginia, the latest addition of high-occupancy toll lanes to the Washington region’s road network.

Toll operator Transurban on Thursday announced the debut date of the Fredericksburg extension, which will bring Virginia’s network of express lanes to nearly 100 miles, spanning Interstates 66, 95, 395 and 495.

With the opening, drivers on the I-95 and I-395 corridor will have access to reversible express lanes from the D.C. line to Fredericksburg. The lanes are set northbound in the morning and southbound in the afternoon.

Officials said they hope the opening will give drivers traveling through the busy corridor a faster and more reliable trip. The lanes will open to southbound traffic around 10 p.m. on Aug. 17 and to northbound traffic the following morning.
