FAIRFAX - The Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Tier 2 Revised Environmental Assessment (EA) is now available for public review and comment until February 4, 2016. The Revised EA is based upon the Preferred Alternative design concept for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project.
The project consists of two express lanes alongside three regular lanes in each direction, with space in the median for future transit; dedicated express lanes access points; safety and operational improvements at key interchanges throughout the corridor; new transit services, such as new and expanded park and ride lots and bus service; and corridor-wide bikeway, trail and sidewalk improvements.
The Revised EA may be viewed on the project website at Transform66.org.
Culminating more than two years of extensive study and public involvement, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced it received a "Finding of No Significant Impact" (FONSI) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway improvements, clearing the way for the project to move forward with design and construction.READ FULL RELEASE
