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
