Virginia DOT held virtual public meeting on extending 495 express lanes to GW Parkway

The Virginia Department of Transportation held a virtual public information meeting Wednesday night to discuss the I-495 Express Lanes extension.

The I-495 Express Lanes Northern Extension project (495 NEXT) involves extending the express lanes by three miles from the Dulles Toll Road interchange to the George Washington Memorial Parkway interchange in the area of the American Legion Bridge.

After more than three years of environmental study and traffic analysis, the project is advancing to the design and construction phase.
