About the Project:

The I-495 Express Lanes Northern Extension Project (495 NEXT) is a public-private partnership between the Commonwealth of Virginia and Transurban that involves extending the 495 Express Lanes north by two-and-a-half miles from the Dulles Corridor to the George Washington Memorial Parkway interchanges near the American Legion Bridge. This important initiative will provide congestion relief, add travel choices, improve travel reliability and enhance safety on a vital corridor in Northern Virginia and the larger region. 495 NEXT will provide new and improved express lanes connections at the Dulles Corridor and George Washington Memorial Parkway interchanges.
