The day when the Washington area consisted of the District of Columbia and a collection of small suburban enclaves is long past. Today our metropolitan region is home to nearly 6 million residents, nearly 45% of whom live in Northern Virginia. Only about 12% live in the District of Columbia.

The new 95 Express Lanes expansion south from the Garrisonville Exit 143 is great news for I-95 corridor local and long distance travelers.
The extension of the existing express lanes one mile south along with the addition of a new lane north of the current exit will largely eliminate what can be up to two mile southbound PM backups. This will enable residents exiting at Garrisonville Road to spend more time with their families as well as weekday and weekend through travelers to reach their destinations faster.
Northbound drivers have a new left lane entry point south of Route 610.
“This is an excellent example of the public and private sectors working together that benefits not only motorists but commuter bus riders,” states Alliance CEO David Birtwistle. “It’s also an important component of a future regional express bus network.”
