Page 455, line 24, strike "$18,467,551" and insert "$21,467,551".
Page 455, after line 33, insert:
"This Item includes $3,000,000 the second year for the department to begin the planning and development of a real-time, dynamic, traffic signal synchronization system in Northern Virginia.  The purpose of this system shall be to track the flow and volume of traffic in the region and to adjust traffic signals to optimize the region's traffic flow."

(This amendment provides $3.0 million of Commonwealth Transportation Funds to develop a traffic light synchronization system beyond the capabilities of the one currently in place in Northern Virginia. The proposed system would be one that could react dynamically in cases of accidents to prioritize emergency responses for EMS, law enforcement and fire departments and to better accommodate traffic flow on alternative routes that travelers on the road with an accident do not usually use.)
