You'll probably notice new pavement markings at six points, north of Springfield, to get onto the 495 Express Lanes.
The purple-painted markings of the E-ZPass logo are 6 feet wide and 8 feet tall, and have been laid down to make it easier fordrivers to see the E-ZPass-only Express Lanes or staying on the regular Capital Beltway. They come after a 72-year-old woman was hit and killed last month, after she braked getting onto the lanes.
