The new ramp is only open to vehicles with three or more occupants and buses. It will reverse directions according to the same schedule as the HOV lanes.
It connects the I-395 HOV lanes to Seminary Road on the top level of the Seminary Road interchange. VDOT is also putting a new traffic signal, turn lanes, and dedicated left-turn lane there for drivers heading to the Mark Center.
The new Seminary Road bridge over I-395 opened Jan. 6, and a new pedestrian bridge over I-395 is slated to open next month.
