Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Tuesday that the state has signed an agreement with Transurban to extend the 495 Express Lanes to the American Legion Bridge, a project that will add nearly three miles to the state’s system of high-occupancy toll lanes and provide a critical link to the region’s growing toll network.

The state also is expanding the Interstate 95 toll lanes to Falmouth and adding a ramp and auxiliary lane in the Woodbridge area as part of new agreements with Transurban, Northam said. The Northern Virginia projects amount to more than $1 billion in investments in transportation over the next five years, the governor said. More>>
