HOV Restrictions Lifted for Tuesday, July 3

Virginia Department of Transportation crews continue to address storm damage, working closely with emergency responders and utility companies to restore traffic signals and reopen roads.

Signal outages
More than 80 traffic signals in Northern Virginia remain without power. Drivers should treat these intersections as four-way stops and proceed with caution. At 2 p.m. this afternoon there were about 50 roads reported with closures due to downed power lines and trees throughout Northern Virginia.

HOV restrictions
To help ease delays on arterial routes due to signal outages, VDOT will lift the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) requirement of two or more passengers on Interstate 66 inside the Beltway during the a.m. (eastbound) and p.m. (westbound) rush hours tomorrow, Tuesday, July 3. Regular HOV restrictions will remain in effect on I-66 outside the Beltway and on I-95/395.
