I-95 HOT Lanes

Jurisdiction: 
Virginia
Cost: 
$1.01 billion
Year of Completion: 
2015
Project Description: 

The I-95 Express Lanes project will create approximately 29 miles of HOT lanes on I-95 between the Capital Beltway and Stafford County, which is outside the Washington Metropolitan Region.  The northern portion of the project will reconfigure existing High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes on I-95 between the Town of Dumfries (Prince William County) and a point two miles north of the Capital Beltway near Edsall Road in Fairfax County.  North of the Prince William Parkway, this reconfiguration will expand the current HOV configuration from two lanes to three lanes for 14 miles. 

The southern portion of the project will construct nine miles of new HOT lanes from Dumfries south to Garrisonville Road in Stafford County.

Tolls will vary based on time of day, week, and congestion level in order to maintain free-flowing traffic conditions.  All tolls must be paid with an E-ZPass.  A typical trip during rush hour is expected to cost between $5 and $6.  HOV-3+, vanpools, motorcycles and buses travel free at all times.
