JUST IN: VDOT Postpones I-495 Meeting in McLean Tonight

meeting in McLean on the plans to extend the 495 Express Lanes is being rescheduled to a date in April, the Virginia Department of Transportation said.

The meeting was originally set for tonight (Thursday) at Langley High School.

VDOT announced the meeting’s postponement this morning, after saying yesterday that it would be live streamed and filmed.

Several residents raised concerns about the meeting earlier this week, worrying that it could increase the risk of spreading the coronavirus.

VDOT is planning to present the results of the 495 NEXT environmental study and traffic analysis, along with hearing feedback and questions from the public.

Currently, the 495 Express Lanes Northern Extension project — a.k.a. 495 NEXT — would extend the 495 Express Lanes north from the I-495 and Dulles Access Road interchange up to the American Legion Bridge and add two new tolled express lanes in each direction.

“The meeting will be rescheduled for April,” VDOT said. “Details will be provided next week.”

People can submit comments either online, by email, by mail or at the future meeting.
