NORFOLK, Va. - A reminder for drivers -- the Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a town hall meeting Wednesday about the new Express Lanes coming to I-64.

Starting in December, VDOT will convert HOV lanes into Express Lanes between I-564 and I-264.

Express Lanes will allow cars carrying just one person to enter during high traffic times, if they pay a toll using an E-ZPass.

Vehicles with two or more people inside will still get to use the lanes for free, if they get an E-ZPass Flex.

VDOT stresses the lanes will be optional and the agency hopes it'll clear up traffic.

The lanes will be free for everyone outside of two four-hour periods each day.

Wednesday's meeting will be held at Princess Anne High School from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The public is invited to see a presentation about the new lanes and learn more about E-ZPass and E-ZPass Flex transponders which will be required to use the lanes during operating hours.
