Virginia County Is Poised To Take A Stand On VDOT-Transurban 495 NEXT Plan

Tysons Reporter reports, Fairfax County, Virginia, supervisors are scheduled to take an official position on VDOT’s I-495 Express Lanes Northern Extension Project (495 NEXT) when they meet this afternoon. “A prepared letter [see PDF pages 169-178] to Virginia Secretary of Transportation Shannon Valentine suggests the board plans to endorse the project, which will extend the I-495 Express Lanes about three miles from the Dulles Toll Road interchange in Tysons to the American Legion Memorial Bridge. However, whether the board will actually approve the letter as it currently stands remains to be seen.”
