Good news if you ever take the express lanes on the 495
beltway as the speed limit is being raised! The speed limit has been increased
from 55 mph to 65 mph. Hopefully, this will alleviate some congestion as we
know this is a high traffic area and actually part of the worst traffic area in
the county which is the Washington
For those who donâ€™t use the express lanes, you may consider
doing so because the other lanes are remaining at 55 mph as the speed limit.
With an EZ-Pass, it may be worth it for the time you save sitting longer and
for the gas you will spend by just sitting when using other lanes. If you have
three or more passengers, you can actually use the express lanes for free with
an EZ-Pass Flex. About half of the drivers that use the beltway donâ€™t have an
EZ-Pass to use the express lane so there are possibly a lot less people in
those lanes during certain times of the day which is a great incentive to use
it. Itâ€™s worth checking out if you use 495 because it may be the difference
between making it on time and being late.
