Chairman Bulova’s Letter to Arlington County Addresses HOV/HOT Lanes Project
Nov. 10, 2009
Fairfax County’s concerns regarding the I-95/395 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)/High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes Project are the focus of a letter from Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova to Arlington County Board of Supervisors Chairman Barbara Favola. On behalf of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Bulova urged negotiation as soon as possible to resolve Arlington County’s concerns and to settle the lawsuit.
This project is regionally significant, said Bulova, to provide “critical accessibility to five current and future military bases in the corridor and enhance travel mobility within five local jurisdictions.” She pointed out that the five military bases will be home to nearly 90,000 employees. She added that the provision of a third HOV lane has been in the region’s long-range plan since the early 1990s.
The full text of the letter with the summary of concerns is available online.
