I-95/395 HOT Lanes Documents

The I-95/395 HOT lanes proposed project is the result of a public-private partnership between VDOT and Fluor-Transurban. Under this partnership agreement, VDOT would own and oversee the lanes and Fluor-Transurban would build, operate and provide routine maintenance on them.

The Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) of 1995 is the legislative framework that enables the commonwealth and local governments to enter into agreements with private entities to acquire, build, improve, maintain, and/or operate qualifying transportation facilities. The act provides a unique mechanism for supplementing public funds available for transportation in the commonwealth. Click here for more information on the PPTA, guidelines, projects and proposals.
