Drivers will begin to see some new activity on the soon-to-open 395 Express Lanes. The Express Lanes team is conducting a series of tests of the tolling technology on the Lanes designed to ensure a smooth ride and seamless experience for drivers:
Drivers are eagerly anticipating the opening of 395 Express Lanes – in fact, nearly 7 in 10 drivers intend to use the Lanes at least occasionally and 9 out of 10 drivers want traffic improved, according to a summer 2019 survey* commissioned by the Express Lanes team. This testing is another step towards delivering new travel choices to the region. For more information on the 395 Express Lanes project, go here and check back later because the opening date of the 395 Express Lanes will be announced very soon.
