Virginia is seeking comment on 14 projects that it expects to fund from fees related to the broad initiative to transform I-66 outside the Capital Beltway.

The Commonwealth said the projects will be funded from about $500 million in concession fees provided by Express Mobility Partners when it agreed last summer to eventually build high-occupancy toll lanes on I-66 outside of the Beltway.

The public will have a chance to comment on the projects on January 4 at 6 p.m. at the Virginia Department of Transportation Office in Fairfax. The Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board will then vote on the projects on January 10.

The 14 projects include:

  • Route 234/Balls Ford Road interchange and relocation in Prince William
  • Virginia Railway Express Manassas Line upgrade – Phase I
  • Balls Ford Road widening from Groveton Road to Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) in Prince William
  • I-66 median widening at Route 29 for WMATA in Fairfax
  • Commuter parking garage at Fairfax Corner
  • George Snyder Trail in Fairfax City
  • Widen Jermantown Road bridge to four lanes over I-66 in Fairfax
  • Western bus maintenance facility in Prince William
  • East Falls Church Metro Bus bay expansion in Arlington
