I-66 Transit/TDM Study
About the Study
DRPT, in coordination with local jurisdictions and partnering agencies, conducted a transit/transportation demand management (TDM) study for the I-66 Corridor from Washington, D.C. to Haymarket, Virginia.
The study includes a review of potential short- and medium-term transit and TDM improvements for the I-66 Corridor that will increase mobility along the corridor.
DRPT managed the study in coordination with a Technical Advisory Committee comprised of local, state, regional and federal/jurisdictional/agency staff.
