EXPECT MAJOR DELAYS during the upcoming National Collegiate Bike Races May 2 – 4 on the Downtown Expressway. An increase in event traffic and City Street closures may cause considerable backups at the on and off ramps in the downtown area. Delays can also be expected at the toll plazas, especially in the cash and full service lanes. Anticipated delays may be longer than 1 hour during peak morning and afternoon hours. Please plan your commute accordingly to account for the anticipated traffic delays.
Please consider either opening an EZ Pass (EZPassVA.com or 1-877-762-7824) account and use the Express Lanes or have exact change when utilizing the Downtown Expressway in order to avoid the long lines at the full service lanes.
