Toll Lanes For The Beltway

Virginia transportation officials recommend the state enter into negotiations with a private firm to build toll lanes on a 13-mile stretch of the capital beltway.

"The proposal would add two lanes on each side of the Beltway -- and separated from other traffic -- between Springfield and Georgetown Pike.Under the plan approved yesterday, the lanes would be free for carpools of three or more people, but others would pay for the privilege of riding in them. Tolls would increase with the amount of traffic to keep the lanes from clogging."
