The Express Toll Lanes of I-95

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Residential and commercial drivers can rejoice because the I-95 Express Toll Lanes are in full use and working successfully. Plans had begun to take shape between 2003 and 2005 when officials began to look at ways to improve certain areas of I-95. Along with improving interchanges and bridges, officials began to map out where the eight miles of lane would run to make the most improvement to the area.

The decision was made to have the lanes run from just north of White Marsh Boulevard to the I-895 split. While these express lanes do include tolls, they have different rates depending on the time of day. Tolls have been at the following:

  • $1.75 during peak rush hours
  • $1.40 off peak hours
  • $0.40 overnight hours

The Express Toll Lanes are only the second electric only toll facility within the state of Maryland. By using the already implemented E-ZPass system along with video tolling, motorists are able to pass through the tolls at the normal highway speed without being forced to slow down and wait in a line. The benefits that were brought to the area because of this new system include:

  • Safer bridges for road travel
  • Reduction of traffic congestion
  • More reliable travel times for both the Express Toll Lanes and the original general purpose lanes
