Purpose

The Transform 66 Multimodal Project’s goals are to move more people, enhance transportation connectivity, improve transit service, reduce roadway congestion, and increase travel options.  Toll revenue from the VDOT Transform 66 Inside the Beltway project will be used to support multimodal improvements that benefit users of I-66 Inside the Beltway (the portion of I-66  beginning at the Beltway and ending at U.S. Route 29 in the Rosslyn area of Arlington County, VA).

NVTC’s Transform 66 Multimodal Project will fund transit services; technology upgrades; roadway, intersection and park-and-ride lot improvements; carpools and vanpools; and other improvements that will move more people by better connecting transportation systems, improving transit services and travel options, and reducing roadway congestion.

The first ten components have been chosen and are expected to be in place by the first day of tolling.

Selection Process
Call for Components

NVTC issued the FY2017 Call for Components to be funded under the Transform 66 Multimodal Project on March 4, 2016, the deadline for applications was March 24, 2016.
NVTC received 19 applications from six jurisdictions and transit providers in District 8 for multimodal component funding.
Read the component application profiles.

What Type of Projects Can Receive Funding

NVTC’s Transform 66 Multimodal Project will fund transit services; technology upgrades; roadway, intersection and park-and-ride lot improvements; carpools and vanpools; and other improvements that will move more people by better connecting transportation systems, improving transit services and travel options, and reducing roadway congestion.

Who Was Eligible to Apply

Eligible applicants included the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William; the cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, Manassas and Manassas Park; and the public transit systems that serve these areas.

When Will Projects Receive Funding

The initial project selection process took place during summer 2016 so that projects will be up and running by the first day of tolling in 2017.

Funding Source and Availability

The MOA assigns VDOT, on behalf of the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB), to control and manage tolling on I-66. Toll revenues will be used and distributed to support the tolling operations and tolling maintenance of the facility, and to fund components selected by NVTC and approved by the CTB for the project, designed to specifically attain the Improvement Goals stated in the MOA. CTB delegates to NVTC the authority to select and administer the implementation of the components to be financed from the portion of the toll revenues of the facility as provided in the MOA..

Component Scoring

NVTC evaluated all applications for funding under the FY2017 Call for Components under the Transform 66 Multimodal Project to determine how well each would meet the improvement goals. The measures focus on increasing the number of people who can travel through the corridor, connectivity across modes, travel time reliability, and access to jobs. In scoring potential benefit, the greatest weight is given to congestion relief as measured by person throughput.   For the Initial Program, the Commission prioritized components that can implemented by the first day of tolling in late 2017.

Endorsed Components

On June 2, 2016, the NVTC Commission endorsed 10 multimodal components for funding under the Transform 66 Multimodal Project. View the endorsed components.

On July 28, 2016, the Commonwealth Transportation Board endorsed the 10 multimodal components for funding, previously endorsed by NVTC. Read the CTB resolution.
