November 2012 LPCA Newsletter

Letter from the President

By Lori Prencipe

Dear Neighbors,
   At the September LPCA meeting, representatives from VDOT and Transurban (Hot Lanes developer) presented on the status of the Hot Lanes build out, including some limited information on the sound walls that will eventually border some LP properties along I-395. Having attended several public Hot Lanes meetings, much of the information from VDOT and Transurban was largely recitations of previous VDOT/Hot Lanes community presentations. See board minutes article on the following page. You can also find information on Hot Lanes at:
www.VAMegaProjects.com http://
and www.vamegaprojects.com/
   The meeting was well attended. LP residents asked representatives for timing and assurances on sound walls and also fielded questions on Hot Lanes pricing and sought clarity on exit ramps impacting our area. VDOT representatives noted that Hot Lane traffic cannot exit at Edsall Road and noted that sound wall engineering does not include individual residential property impact assessments.
   Also in attendance were residents from Overlook, who are concerned about Hot Lane/I-395 flyover ramp/terminus and VDOT analysis of traffic, health and environmental impacts. The group, not officially supported by the Overlook Civic Association, is fielding a petition seeking to delay the construction of Hot Lanes exits/terminus near Edsall Road until further studies are conducted by VDOT on traffic and other impacts. According to the group the Hot Lanes presentations “have downplayed the negative effects of traffic congestion, pollution, and noise levels.”  They also believe that “VDOT has not updated the analysis of the effects since the decision was made to move the final terminus from Arlington to Turkey Cock Run/Edsall Road.”
   The group notes that “the best outcome would be to move the ramp away from our area, either back to Springfield where it was originally planned, or north to Seminary where much of the traffic will be headed, i.e., the BRAC building.”
   At the November meeting, copies of the group’s letter and other correspondence will be available and will be read into the LPCA meeting minutes.
