Page 380, line 16, strike "$2,077,235,226" and insert "$2,102,235,226".
Page 380, line 16, strike "$1,706,699,198" and insert "$1,731,699,198".

Page 381, after line 39, insert:

"I. Included in the amounts for this item is $25,000,000 in the first year and $25,000,000 in the second year from the Priority Transportation Fund which shall be used to cover part of the costs associated with adding an additional lane on eastbound Interstate 66 from the interchange with Interstate 495 to the exit for Route 29 in Arlington County."


(This amendment redirects $50.0 million in funding from the Priority Transportation Fund that had been dedicated to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) in House Bill 30 as introduced and instead directs its use to adding a lane on I-66 eastbound from I-495 to the Route 29 exit in Arlington County.  A companion amendment to Item 438 removes the funding from MWAA.)
