About 495 NEXT Revegetation Conceptual Plan

The 495 NEXT Revegetation Conceptual Plan is intended to naturalize areas along the project corridor where possible based on available space, site conditions and design and safety criteria. Revegetation will occur in designated areas within VDOT's right-of-way after construction activities are completed. VDOT and its project partners welcome input from the community as development of the revegetation conceptual plan continues.

More information can be found here.

Project Background

The 495 NEXT project is extending the existing 495 Express Lanes north by two-and-a-half miles from the Dulles Corridor interchange to the George Washington Memorial Parkway interchange in the vicinity of the American Legion Bridge. The project is providing new and improved connections at the Dulles Corridor and George Washington Memorial Parkway. 

495 NEXT is a public-private partnership project between the Commonwealth of Virginia and Transurban, operator of the existing 495 Express Lanes. Lane Construction is the design-build contractor for the project. The new extended lanes are scheduled to open in 2025.
