Current projects

There’s always something going on in the Washington, D.C. metro area. You shouldn’t miss out on a single thing because of traffic. New Express Lanes projects are paving the way for easier travel to get you from here to there.

All you’ll need to travel these new Lanes once they’re open is an E-ZPass® or E-ZPass® Flex. Head over to Learn the Lanes for more on how you can travel along the Express Lanes.

Current Projects: Fredericksburg Extension

95 Express Lanes Fredericksburg Extension (Fred Ex)

There’s a lot in motion as we drive toward the Fred Ex opening in late 2023. The extension will pick up where the 95 Express Lanes currently end, just past Route 610 in Stafford County, and extend to near Route 17. 

This will create a connected corridor that’ll run for nearly 50 miles from Fredericksburg to the D.C. line. Talk about really being able to go the extra mile.

Current Projects: 495 Express Lanes Northern Extension

495 Express Lanes Northern Extension

Just north of Tysons, driving can be tricky. So we’ve put our heads together with Virginia to find a better way. We’re getting ready to begin construction on a 2 mile extension of the 495 Express Lanes north toward the American Legion Bridge with new connections to the Dulles Toll Road and George Washington Memorial Parkway.  

We know you travel better with more choices. As part of this project, we’re planning to invest $2.2 million annually which will support new bus service between Maryland and Virginia.

95 Express Lanes ramp to Opitz Boulevard

As part of the development agreement we reached with Virginia, we are working to add a new access point to the 95 Express Lanes in Prince William County. A reversible ramp will connect the Lanes to Opitz Boulevard and offer access to nearby sites like Potomac Mills, Sentara Virginia Medical Center and Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center.

Capital Beltway Accord & Maryland Express Lanes

If you’ve ever been stuck on the American Legion Bridge, then you know how badly it needs an upgrade. The gridlock and bumper-to-bumper traffic is no joke. So good thing Virginia and Maryland announced a plan to replace the aging American Legion Bridge with a new modern bridge and add four new Express Lanes to deliver much needed relief. We’re proud to support these governments to tackle this – adding new Express Lanes plus bridge improvements. The project will also:

  • Deliver 40% more lane capacity
  • Reduce congestion in the regular lanes by 25%
  • Cut commuting time in half for customers
  • Add new bicycle and pedestrian connections across the river
  • Be designed predominantly within the footprint of the existing bridge to minimize impact
