95 Express Lanes in Virginia

The 95 Express Lanes, opening in December 2014, will use dynamic tolling that will adjust tolls based on real-time traffic conditions, video technology capable of identifying accidents, and a series of electronic signs to communicate with drivers and state troopers to ensure enforcement.

95 Express Lanes In The News

First experiences with I-95 HOT lanes
Robert Thomson, December 29, 2014, Washington Post
Here are some tips based on two morning rush trips from the southern end of the HOT lanes in Aquia to the northern end just inside the Capital Beltway.

Ridesharing on the 95 Express Lanes

Carpoolers can use the 95 Express Lanes toll-free at any time of day. To use the Express Lanes toll-free, you need three or more people in your vehicle and an E-ZPass® Flex set to HOV mode. E-ZPass Flex works like a standard E-ZPass® but lets you switch between HOV and toll-paying modes. The switchable E-ZPass Flex lets us know you are a carpooler so that you won't be charged a toll. E-ZPass Flex works like a standard E-ZPass on all other Virginia toll roads and wherever E-ZPass is accepted – regardless of the position of the switch. Mandatory E-ZPass and enhanced enforcement mean fewer violators.

The 95 Express lanes are reversible, much the same as the I-95 HOV lanes are today. Please note the schedule is approximate and will vary based on real-time traffic conditions. Some entry points will close or open before others. No matter when you travel, remember to pay close attention to on-road signage and gates. If an access point is open to traffic, you're able to enter the Express Lanes. Never attempt to enter or exit the Express Lanes via an access point that is closed or is in the process of closing.
