VDOT proposes to reconfigure I-66 outside the Capital Beltway to have two managed express lanes and three general purpose lanes in each direction. The managed express lanes would use dynamic, congestion-based tolling for vehicles with less than 3 occupants at all times to maintain free-flow conditions.
VDOT has proposed two alternative sets of access and egress points between the express lanes and the general purpose lanes. Both alternatives (A and B) are detailed in the Air Quality Conformity Inputs table and will be analyzed separately.
Multimodal aspects of the proposed project include implementation of a new high-frequency bus service and the construction of new, and expansion of existing commuter park-and-ride lots.
