Construction on Pentagon Terminus of 395 Express Lanes Begins

Motorists, slugs and bus commuters on their way to the Pentagon should expect new congestion starting Thursday, as the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) begins work on the Eads Street terminus of the 395 Express Lanes.

The first phase of the construction is scheduled to begin Thursday and—depending on weather disruptions—will continue for about four weeks, as crews reconfigure medians, demolish islands and install permanent pavement, VDOT said. The Eads Street area is scheduled to be completed by the fall.

Weeknight Closures at Eads Street

Eads Street between South Rotary Road and Army Navy Drive will be closed every weeknight from 10 pm Monday through 4 am Thursday, and weekends from 10 pm Friday through 4 am Monday. The I-395 HOV ramp will also be closed during these times.

The 395 Express Lanes project will extend the 395 Express Lanes for eight miles, from Turkeycock Run near Edsall Road to the vicinty of Eads Street. Two existing HOV lanes will also be convereted to three reversible express lanes.

Total HOV Lane Closures from Edsall Road North

Also this week, roadwork on the I-395 HOV lanes will require total overnight closure of the HOV lanes from near Edsall Road to the 14th Street Bridge—beginning 8 pm and lasting through 4 am nightly this week, Monday through Thursday. Full overnight closures will also occur beginning 11 pm Friday through 4 am on June 25.

General Purpose Lane Closures

Roadwork along the I-395 southbound general purpose lanes will require an overnight double-lane closure of the outside lanes between Duke Street and Edsall Road. This week, the closures will take place Monday through Thursday every night from 10 pm through 5 am the following morning, and 11 pm Friday through 8 am Saturday.
