Department of Transportation


Page 381, after line 39, insert:

"I. The Department of Transportation shall work with affected parties to develop a plan to accommodate toll-free access from Interstate 66 to the West Falls Church Metro Station or to develop a mechanism to refund tolls to drivers traveling on Interstate 66 inside the Beltway solely for the purpose of accessing the Metro station.  Such plan shall not impact toll amounts paid for travel on Interstate 66 outside the Beltway.  The Department shall report to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations, Senate Finance and House and Senate Transportation Committees on the feasibility of such a process, which would be implemented coinciding with the imposition of rush-hour tolling of HOT lanes in Interstate 66 inside the Capitol Beltway, by November 15, 2016."


(This amendment directs VDOT to develop a plan to allow for toll-free access on Interstate 66 inside the Beltway for those driving only to reach the West Falls Church Metro Station.)
