VA Newspaper Urges Support for HOT Lanes in Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Plan

The Daily Press editorial board focuses on the HOT lanes in VDOT’s plan to widen the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel and thereby “roughly double the capacity of our region’s most vital transportation connection and free up our most aggravating bottleneck.” After wading through arguments for and against tolled express lanes, the editors conclude, “The HOT proposal to finance expansion of HRBT is an important step toward fixing our traffic headaches. Let’s all give it a green light.”
