Hours to Change for I-95/395 HOV Lanes Reversal Starting Monday, Sept. 8

Beginning on or about Monday, September 8, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will change the reversal times of the I-95/I-395 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to their regular hours during weekdays, to accommodate rush-hour traffic flow.

The I-95/395 HOV lanes will remain open to northbound traffic until 11 a.m. and will reopen to southbound traffic by no later than 1:00 p.m.

The HOV lanes' reversible operations have been following a modified schedule during the last two months, to allow the lanes to open one hour earlier for southbound traffic. This schedule change was necessary to help ease congestion on I-95 South, which was intensified due to heavy summer construction work.

Major construction remains underway along Northern Virginia's heavily-traveled I-95/395 corridor, requiring lane closures with potential traffic impacts. The 95 Express Lanes project, which spans from Garrisonville Road in Stafford County to just north of Edsall Road on I-395 in Alexandria, is in its final months of construction, and is scheduled to open in early 2015.

Additionally, work is fully ramped up on the I-95 Shoulder Improvement project in Prince William County, as well as the I-395 North Auxiliary Lane project in Alexandria.
