About the Project

Stringfellow Road

Stringfellow Road

Stringfellow Road at I-66 has been modified to add full-time Express Lanes-only access to and from the east. These ramps provide commuter buses, vanpools, and carpools with convenient access from the Stringfellow Road Park & Ride lot to the Vienna-Fairfax/GMU Metrorail Station, Tysons, Arlington, and Washington using the region’s express lanes network.

Stringfellow Road Express Lanes Access

  • The previous ramps have been replaced by new ramps providing Express Lanes access to and from the east.
  • No general-purpose lanes access is being added.
