"B. Included in the amounts for this Item is $2,000,000 the second year from Commonwealth Transportation Funds to conduct a transit study along U.S. Route 1 in Fairfax County.  The study shall address current and projected future traffic deficiencies with a viable long-term solution for the corridor.  The intent is to transform the area into transit-oriented and transit-supportive mixed use development near stations and/or stops; identify a locally-preferred alternative (LPA) that produces the greatest number of transit riders taking into account cost and impact; support the social and economic renewal of the corridor through public transportation investment; and develop recommendations for a financial plan for the LPA.  Such study shall be undertaken in manner that satisfies the Federal Highway Administration requirements to finalize the Route 1 Centerline Design Study."

(This amendment directs the Department of Rail and Public Transportation to utilize $2.0 million in the second year from its funding for a transit study in the U.S. Route 1 corridor in Fairfax County.)
