1 Introduction

1.1 Project Overview and Background

The Capital Beltway HOT Lanes Project is being undertaken by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), in partnerships with Capital Beltway Express, LLC (CBE), under the auspices of Virginia's Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA). This project will deliver four new lanes on the Capital Beltway (two in each direction), from the Springfield Interchange in the south to Old Dominion Drive in the north. Major interchanges along this 14-mile segment will be reconstructed; ultimately, the two existing inner lanes in each direction will be repaired, instrumented, and operated by CBE as high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes. Detailed information on the Project can be found at and

1.2 Purpose of SEP 14 Annual Report

VDOT submitted its initial SEP 14 Report for the Capital Beltway HOT Lanes Project in the third quarter of 2008, and it is publicly available at The purpose of the initial report was to document the history and progress of the project since the Initial SEP-14 Work Plan approval in April 2005. The intent of the initial report was to review and analyze the differences between this project and traditional contracting methods.

After submitting the initial report, VDOT is to submit Annual Reports prior to January 31st of each year. These Annual Reports are to provide additional details in the areas of schedule, cost, risk, and other elements of project management. A "Lessons Learned" section will be developed as part of the Annual Reports. VDOT will solicit input to the "Lessons Learned" section from the PPTA developer, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and other appropriate parties involved in this effort. The Annual Report also will include an evaluation of the cost, schedule, and quality aspects of the project.
