Toll lane proposal faces opposition in Virginia
There was a time when it looked like smooth sailing for a proposal to widen Interstates 395 and 95 in Northern Virginia by building express toll lanes. But the project has recently run into increasing opposition. The Washington Examiner reports that the Alexandria City Council agreed to a resolution denouncing the project.
Is what we're seeing here just NIMBY opposition or is it part of a general backlash against express toll lane projects? We might be finding that answer in Maryland in the not-too-distant future.
