As Snow Falls, Tolls Rise on DC Express Lanes

WTTG reports that as snowflakes started to fall in the nation’s capital last night, January 5, “commuters driving during the evening rush hour in Northern Virginia found using the Express Lanes would be very costly.” A station staff member using I-495 “found a sign showing the toll for the Express Lanes starting from nearby the Tysons Corner area to the I-395/95 exit would cost a whopping $30!” WTTG adds, “As of 6 p.m. Thursday, the Express Lanes website showed an expected 36-minute trip from the 495 Express Lanes starting nearby Tysons Corner all the way to I-95 near Garrisonville Road/Route 610 in Stafford costing over $45.”
