Metro Washington Express Lane Network Gets Big Business Endorsement

The Greater Washington Partnership, an influential business group, released a report in mid-May advocating a multimodal solution to congestion in metro Washington, D.C., built around a regionally managed network of tolled express lanes from Baltimore to Richmond, Va.

The goal is to improve connectivity of the region’s roadways and reduce congestion for all income classes while generating a funding stream to help pay for transit and regional transportation infrastructure.

To accomplish that the report says “decision-makers should prioritize providing enhanced connectivity to the greatest number of people, not moving the most vehicles or generating the most revenue.”
