395 Express Lanes Extension Project
Extending the 95 Express Lanes for eight miles north to the D.C. line, the 395 Express Lanes would significantly reduce congestion in the I-395 corridor, increase capacity by adding an additional HOV lane to make three reversible lanes on I-395 and extend the benefits and travel options of the 95 Express Lanes further north.
The 395 Express Lanes would operate just like the 95 Express Lanes in Northern Virginia. Carpoolers and sluggers with three or more people in the vehicle would continue to travel for free with an E-ZPass® FlexSM set to HOV mode. Those willing to pay a toll would be able to access the Lanes 24/7 with an E-ZPass®.
The existing HOV entry and exit points on the current I-395 HOV lanes would become accessible for toll paying customers. However, the new Seminary Road ramp currently under construction would remain HOV use only and improvements would be made to Eads Street access point.
