More Control Over Your Travel
Not only is the 66 Express easy to use, you can expect a reliable, congestion-free trip with faster, more predictable drive times. The 66 Express allows you to escape frustrating stop-and-go traffic.
Designed for Safety
The 66 Express is designed with safety in mind. Completely rebuilt from the sub-base up, the roadway features seamless, smooth pavement for all 22.5 miles, and is equipped with advanced smart-road technology for the interconnected future of highway travel.
The all-electronic, cashless 66 Express will automatically charge your E-ZPass account. No transponder? Don’t worry. Our tolling cameras will photograph your vehicle's license plate, then we'll send a bill* to the associated address. *administrative fees will apply

From Bikes To Big Rigs
We welcome a wide range of vehicles on the 66 Express Outside the Beltway. Commercial trucks, 18-wheelers, and work vans rely on the lanes every day. Commuters and carpoolers take advantage of predictable travel. And motorcycles always ride the 66 Express for free!
Part of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Transform 66 initiative, the 66 Express Outside the Beltway is a technologically advanced, dynamically tolled roadway spanning 22.5 miles between Gainesville and the Capital Beltway.
The lanes are divided into toll segments – three eastbound, four westbound – with multiple exits in each segment. Drivers are charged a single toll rate to reach any of the exits in that segment.
Based on real-time conditions and demand, the dynamic toll-rate system keeps traffic moving at all times, regardless of congestion on the general-purpose lanes.
