I live in the Dumfries/Montclair area and this week, I've noticed a few things. There is NO backup at all near the Route 234 (Exit 152) area. Also, since the Dumfries HOV exit has closed and moved down the road 2 miles to Joplin Rd (Quantico), there is no merge area at Dumfries Rd; thus, we are rolling through Exit 152 at 65-70mph. The REAL concern is for people in Stafford/Fredericksburg area. There is only a 1/2 mile merge area at the end of the HOT lanes to Exit 143, Garrisonville, so we KNOW there will be daily/weekly sideswipe crashes, and rear-enders for people trying to exit the HOT lanes and merge onto the main lanes. Or worse, people in the right lane not allowing HOT lane traffic to "merge" in front of them.[8D]

It's pretty ugly. The back up is now 9 miles South at Garrisonville. Thursday the HOV lanes were backed up 1 1/4 miles waiting to get off. Friday it was easily 2 miles. I dread next week because there will be more people on there. The HOV drivers and the ones who want to avoid traffic. I hate to say it but the main lines were moving faster (until 610 that is) than the HOV. The problem at Garrisonville is that there is only one lane for the people getting on 95 and exiting at Garrisonville so two things are happening in one lane and people trying to merge on to 95 cannot and it prevents people from exiting at Garrisonville from both the HOV and the main lanes.

I'm sorry, did I miss something? The southbound HOT exit before 234 is no longer available? Wha???
