The Virginia Department of Transportation has announced that it will lift certain H.O.V. restrictions for the Monday afternoon and evening commute. The H.O.V. rules will be lifted for westbound Interstate 66 inside the Beltway, just as H.O.V. restrictions weren’t enforced during the morning commute for eastbound traffic inside the Beltway.

Restrictions will remain in place on Interstate 395, Interstate 95 and the span of westbound Interstate 66 outside of the Beltway.
