There’s a lot in motion as we get closer to the 395 Express Lanes grand opening in the fall of 2019. When the Lanes officially open, drivers will enjoy more traveling options in the D.C. metro area.
Since the project is in full swing, here’s what you need to know about traveling during this time and what to expect from the new Lanes.
The 395 Express Lanes will open in the fall of 2019.
For more information about the project's construction and development, jump onto the Virginia Department of Transportation’s website.
We’ve become a part of the local communities along the I-395 corridor as we work on the project. The 395 Express Lanes Community Grant Program is our way of being a good neighbor by giving back to them. Grants of $500 to $3,000 will be awarded throughout the year to help support the local environment and neighborhoods.

New travel incentives are now available during the construction of the 395 Express Lanes project. These incentives make it easier for you to ride the bus, carpool, vanpool and telework along the I-395 corridor. More about these new incentives and commuting options below.
Need to find a carpool or bus route? The following resources will help you on your way:
Additional bus services have been added during peak hours on a popular OmniRide route, as well as two Metrobus commuter routes to help alleviate traffic in the corridor.
Carpool with one or more people and you may receive up to $230 through the Commuter Connections 'Pool Rewards' program.
To make the process easier, financial assistance and new rider matching is available to help start new vanpools traveling on I-395.
Employers with employees that use the I-395 corridor may be eligible for up to $10,000 in additional subsidies to encourage them to create a new teleworking program.
To find out more information on any of these incentives or additional commuting options, please contact the jurisdiction in which you live.
We’re making progress on the 395 Express Lanes every day. Here’s what we’re up to in the area as we work around the clock toward the grand opening.
