511 Update
Northern Virginia now has a special 511 transportation page. It focuses on the I-95 corridor.

I-95 Update
The 95 Express Lanes will provide new choices, added capacity and extend and improve the performance of the existing HOV system.   The 95 Express Lanes will extend from the Edsall Road area in Fairfax County to Garrisonville Road in Stafford County.  For more information, please visit www.95ExpressLanes.com.

I-95 Weekly Lane Closure Update
The Virginia Megaprojects Update Bulletin is published and distributed weekly to provide motorists with a look-ahead of requested closures planned by contractors on interstates and arterial roads in the Virginia Megaprojects work zone areas.

Road closures listed in this bulletin may or may not occur due to unforeseen events such as weather conditions or changes in work plans.

Virginia511: Motorists are encouraged to check 511Virginia.org for 'real-time' traffic maps to help plan your travel.

I-95 Lanes Project

The 95 Express Lanes Project will add capacity to the existing HOV lanes from the vicinity of Edsall Road (Route 648), I-395 in Fairfax County to the Prince William Parkway (Route 294) in Prince William County; improve the two existing HOV lanes for six miles from the Prince William Parkway to Dumfries (Route 234); and add a nine-mile reversible two-lane extension of the existing HOV lanes from Route 234 to Garrisonville Road (Route 610) in Stafford County. This project will create new transportation options in Northern Virginia.  The new Express Lanes are expected to open by the end of 2014.


The Express Lanes will be free for vehicles with three or more occupants, or available to other travelers who choose to pay a toll.  The Express Lanes will keep traffic moving by using dynamic tolling to manage the demand for the lanes and a series of electronic signs to communicate with drivers about toll rates and traffic conditions.  Tolls will be adjusted based on real-time traffic conditions, and will provide faster and more predictable trips.  Features such as video technology that will quickly identify incidents and state troopers assigned to the corridor to enforce HOV policies to reduce toll violators will enhance safety throughout the corridor.


Construction is in full swing this summer along the 29-mile work zone on both I-95 north and south.  Motorists should prepare for extensive lane closures on I-395/95 in Northern Virginia during non-peak traffic hours and during overnight hours, seven days a week. Motorists are encouraged to review the summer schedule and project information to be better prepared and able to plan ahead.
