    A Community Update

    A discussion of I-66 planning, led by the Virginia Department of Transportation.

    VDOT is in the planning stages to transform Interstate 66 inside the Beltway.  Proposed improvements include converting the existing I-66 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes between I-495 (the Capital Beltway) and the U.S. Route 29 in Rosslyn into High Occupancy Toll (HOT) or express lanes during weekday peak periods, in order to deliver free-flowing and more reliable travel.  Vehicles with three or more people will be able to travel the lanes for free, while other drivers will pay a toll to use these lanes.

    Speaking about this proposed project will be Renee Hamilton, VDOT’s Deputy District Administrator for Northern Virginia.
