95 Express Lanes

-       The HOV lanes on I-95 will transition to Express Lanes with tolling and new rules in effect starting Monday, December 29.  The project is on time and on budget. 

-       Roadway improvements have been completed early, so we’re opening new ramps and lanes on I-95 on Sunday, December 14 to allow travelers to benefit from the additional capacity during the holiday season.

-       Standard HOV rules will continue to be in effect during rush hour until tolling commences, with the exception of holidays.

-       Early access also allows the region’s travelers to get used to roadway changes on I-95 before tolling commences and new Express Lanes rules go into effect.

-       Safety of travelers is the top priority. Drivers need to remain alert as new traffic patterns will be introduced in the coming days.

-       Starting Monday, December 29, all travelers must have an E-ZPass or an E-ZPass Flex (for carpools) to use the 95 Express Lanes, and HOV/tolling rules will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

-       We encourage all travelers to get and install their E-ZPass in their vehicles today; charging of tolls will not begin until December 29.

95 Express Lanes Opening This Month

Carpoolers need an E-Z Pass Flex to travel toll-free in the 95 Express Lanes.  E-Z Pass Flex works like a standard E-Z Pass but allows carpoolers to switch between HOV and toll-paying modes.  The switchable E-ZPass Flex lets the Express Lanes operator know which vehicles are HOV-3+ so that they aren’t charged a toll.  HOV-3+ carpoolers will enjoy toll-free trips 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the 95 Express Lanes. Get your E-Z Pass Flex today.
