Page 461, after line 50, insert:
"N.  It is the intent of the General Assembly to alter the Woodrow Wilson Bridge project from twelve lanes to 10 lanes without physical lane separations.  To that end, the Commissioner is directed to work with the State of Maryland for a project design to narrow the deck of the new bridge's two spans to 84 feet each, which will accommodate five lanes, plus two breakdown lanes.  The remaining contracts for the bridge project that have been advertised for bids shall not be approved before the Commissioner briefs the General Assembly on efforts to secure Maryland's cooperation to change the project's scope."

(This amendment is self-explanatory.)
