I-395 Express Lanes to open Sunday in NoVa
Newly completed Interstate 395 Express Lanes will open Sunday in Northern Virginia.
The $475 million project creates eight miles of toll lanes on I-395, part of the highly congested traffic corridor between Fairfax County and Washington, D.C.
Developers expect the lanes to save drivers an estimated 30 minutes during morning rush hour.
The I-395 project is the result of a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Transurban, the current operators of the 95 and 495 Express Lanes.
The I-395 project, which began construction in August 2017, was completed on time and on budget, according to the governor’s office.
Construction was led by Connecticut-based Lane Construction.
