VDOT issued a request for qualifications for the project on September 17th.

The concession contract would not exceed 40 years and the total project investment is estimated at US$2.1 billion. VDOT expects that the public contribution will be about US$600 million, which would be provided during the construction period.

The project has the following objectives: improving multimodal mobility along the I-66 corridor by providing diverse travel choices through an efficient network of P&R, HOV, transit, and express lane opportunities in a cost-effective and timely manner; enhancing person-throughput capacity; and enhancing corridor wide transportation safety and travel reliability.

A final decision on how the I-66 project will be financed is expected by end of this year. Then VDOT will launch a request for proposals (RFP) for the shortlisted teams of that method.  Construction is scheduled to begin in 2017 and the improved stretch of I-66 is slated to open in 2021.
