"K. 1. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the Secretary of Transportation and the Virginia Department of Transportation form and execute a plan, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) and the United States Congress to utilize the four under-used lanes of the Dulles Access Road (DIAAH) by converting the Dulles Access Road into tolled HOT lanes.  The revenue generated from such tolling shall be utilized to reduce the toll rates on the Dulles Toll Road.  VDOT and MWAA shall certify that this action satisfies the requirements of § 11.05 of the Dulles Toll Road Permit and Operating Agreement.  These actions shall be used to ensure that the Dulles Toll Road becomes toll-free by January 1, 2030."


(This amendment directs the Department of Transportation and the Secretary of Transportation to execute a plan, in conjunction with MWAA and the U.S. Congress, to convert the Dulles Access Road to HOT lanes and utilize the revenues generated to buy-down and expedite the defeasement of tolling on the Dulles Toll Road.)
