Beginning Monday, December 4, I-66 Inside the Beltway — between I-495 and Route 29 in Rosslyn — will operate as express lanes with a toll during peak travel hours, allowing anyone to choose a faster trip during rush hours.
During the times tolling is in effect — eastbound: 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.; westbound: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Monday-Friday — you’ll need to have an E-ZPass properly mounted in your vehicle. If you’re driving alone, you’ll need to pay a toll with the E-ZPass. If you’re carpooling as HOV-2+, you can travel for free, but will need an E-ZPass Flex in the HOV mode. The lanes will remain free to all users during the off-peak periods, including weekends.
