Driving Directions

We are one block from Exit #71 off Route 66. Route 66 has HOV-restricted hours throughout the day. HOV=High Occupancy Vehicle, two or more people per vehicle

HOV-restrictions are in effect 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastbound and 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Westbound, however, airport traffic is exempt from HOV restrictions. The Arlington County Police department has confirmed all airport traffic is exempt from HOV restrictions. If you are pulled over by a police officer, you only need to show your airline ticket, airline boarding pass or airline itinerary to avoid receiving a ticket. The Police Department is well-versed in airport traffic/HOV problems.
