Advocate for a managed lanes and bus rapid transit system, maximizing private sector investment, to improve mobility in the I-66 corridor while minimizing potential impacts to its communities, businesses and commuters.  While we acknowledge the commitment by Governor Terry McAuliffe and Virginia Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne to deliver major I-66 improvements, we believe their current position to fund improvements with just public financing could be a disaster for Virginia taxpayers and I-66 commuters.  VDOT should maximize private sector investment to finance, build, operate, and maintain a managed lane system in the I-66 corridor. 

SUPPORTING BUS RAPID TRANSIT

While we don't oppose a metrorail extension, a bus rapid transit system utilizing new I-66 HOT Lanes would provide a cost effective solution to attracting more transit users.


PROTECT TAXPAYERS AND

LOCAL ROAD PROJECTS

If VDOT relies on public financing alone it would put Virginia taxpayers at risk for a massive bailout and potentially delay or cancel local road projects across Virginia. 


MINIMIZE IMPACTS TO COMMUNITIES AND BUSINESSES

If VDOT advances the public financing option, it could take a decade or more to build.  Do I-66 commuters, residents, and businesses really want to endure an eternal construction zone? 


 OUR MISSION:

  Improving travel in the I-66 Corridor for Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun counties

CONGESTION RELIEF IS NEEDED NOW

The I-66 Corridor in Virginia is gridlocked.  Commuters, residents, and businesses are suffering.  Improvements are needed now.  Attracting private sector investments would deliver major improvements quicker.
