Kaine, VDOT, Arlington VIPs Attempting to Save HOT Lanes Deal
On September 9th VDOT Director Pierce Homer and local elected officials, including Guru of Gridlock Chris Zimmerman, will discuss HOT Lanes at the Arlington Committee of 100 meeting at Marymount University, a private college located about 8 miles from I-395. The Arlington Committee of 100 is a group of about 300 "community leaders". No public meetings with VDOT VIPs and other state officials are currently scheduled. Governor Kaine has reportedly instructed VDOT, Zimmerman, and others to take whatever steps are necessary to save the HOT Lanes deal.
