Starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, the HOV lanes will open for northbound traffic from Dumfries to the Franconia–Springfield Parkway. Traffic will have to leave the HOV lanes there and will be able to re-enter them at Edsall Road.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, all of the HOV lanes will be open for northbound traffic.
