Express Lanes travel pattern changed for July 4

WASHINGTON — Drivers using the 95 Express Lanes should expect a different pattern on the Fourth of July to accommodate the fireworks on the National Mall and the Foo Fighters concert at RFK Stadium.

Instead of the usual southbound traffic, the 95 Express Lanes will be heading northbound all day until 7 p.m. to accommodate people going into the District for the festivities. Toll lane operator, Transurban says the lanes will then reopen around 9 or 9:30 p.m. to accommodate southbound traffic heading home from the fireworks.

Southbound traffic will continue until midnight, when the lanes will shut down for a couple hours.

The 95 Express Lanes will resume the normal northbound traffic on Sunday to accommodate people coming home from the holiday weekend.
