Project Update

On February 3, 2011, Secretary Sean T. Connaughton announced a new I-95 HOV/HOT Lane project that will run from Garrisonville Road in Stafford County to Edsall Road in Fairfax County.

Read the Feb. 3, 2011 news release.

This new project will create approximately 29 miles of HOV/HOT Lanes on I-95. This project will add capacity to the existing HOV Lanes from the Prince William Parkway to the vicinity of Edsall Road; improve the existing two HOV lanes for six miles from Route 234 to the Prince William Parkway. A 9-mile reversible two-lane extension of the existing HOV lanes from Dumfries to Garrisonville Road in Stafford County will help to alleviate the worst traffic bottleneck in the region.

As a separate project, plans are also being advanced to construct a direct ramp from the existing HOV lanes on I-395 to Seminary Road which will connect the Mark Center site to this expanded regional transit and HOV network. The ramp will be restricted to transit and HOV use only. Click here for more information on the Mark Center project.
