This 14-mile study is evaluating connections between Virginia's High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes, Maryland's Capital Beltway Study, the Inter County Connector (ICC) project and the I-270 Multi-Modal Corridor Study. This study is expected to be completed by this Spring 2009.

VDOTwas leading the efforts for the Southside Mobility Study. This study was also evaluating possible uses for the 11th and 12th lanes on the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The study reports can be found on the website, www.southsidecapitalbeltway.org.
