Below this kind of an settlement, companies would do the job above the future yr with MDOT, the Maryland Transportation Authority, local officials, inhabitants and other people to develop a approach to increase the Beltway concerning the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Northern Virginia and the I-270 spur, as effectively as I-270 involving the Beltway and I-370. The challenge involves rebuilding and expanding the American Legion Bridge.
The existing lanes would be rebuilt and continue to be cost-free.
The dialogue would look for to “further avoid and limit impacts” to the natural environment, communities, surrounding assets and utilities, MDOT said.
Under the proposal by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), the highway expansions would come at “no web cost” to the state since the companies would finance the toll lanes’ building, establish them and work them in exchange for trying to keep most of the profits above 50 years. The arrangement, valued at $9 billion to $11 billion, would be one of the major public-private partnerships ever in the country.
The earliest a comprehensive construction and functions agreement would be awarded would be summer 2022, right after the federally essential environmental assessment is full, MDOT has stated.
