The Virginia Department of Transportation announces that a project to extend Interstate 95 Express Lanes by two miles in Stafford County, adding new northbound and southbound ramps, will open to traffic ahead of schedule on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.
The $50 million project extends Express Lanes beyond the flyover ramp where they end today, just north of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road).
The new southbound ramp will open to traffic on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 31. The new northbound ramp will open early Wednesday, November 1.
What Drivers Need to Know
The extension will operate under the same rules and reversal schedule as the current 95 Express Lanes.
When the extension opens, I-95 northbound traffic will be able to enter Express Lanes earlier at a new left entrance before the Garrisonville Road overpass.
Southbound Express Lanes traffic heading to Fredericksburg will be able to continue past Garrisonville and merge about one mile south of the Garrisonville Road exit.
All drivers need an E-ZPass to use the Express Lanes. Carpools need an E-ZPass Flex and three or more people in the vehicle to travel toll-free.
