Dear
 
Secretary
 
LaHood:
 
I
 
am
 
writing
 
to
 
urge
 
you
 
to
 
approve
 
Fairfax
 
County’s
 
request
 
for
 
allocation
 
of 
 
$78.0
 
million
 
in
 
Transportation
 
Investments
 
Generating
 
Economic
 
Recovery
 
(TIGER)
 
II
 
Program
 
grant
 
funds.
 
The
 
Fairfax
 
County
 
Board
 
of 
 
Supervisors
 
has
 
approved
 
the
 
County
 
Department
 
of 
 
Transportation’s
 
request
 
and
 
is
 
prepared
 
to
 
meet
 
the
 
20
 
percent
 
Local
 
Cash
 
Match
 
required
 
for
 
these
 
grants,
 
should
 
they
 
be
 
received.
 
The
 
funds,
 
made
 
available
 
under
 
the
 
National
 
Infrastructure
 
Investment
 
Program
 
will
 
be
 
used
 
to
 
address
 
five
 
key
 
transportation
 
and
 
infrastructure
 
issues
 
throughout
 
Fairfax
 
County.
 
I
 
believe
 
the
 
most
 
significant
 
priority
 
in
 
this
 
application
 
is
 
funding
 
for
 
the
 
Richmond
 
Highway
 
Transit
 
Study
 
($1.0
 
million).
 
Richmond
 
Highway
 
runs
 
through
 
the
 
44
th
 
District
 
for
 
 just
 
under
 
seven
 
miles
 
and
 
serves
 
as
 
the
 
primary
 
transportation
 
artery
 
for
 
Mount
 
Vernon
 
residents.
 
U.S.
 
1
 
has
 
not
 
been
 
widened
 
between
 
Telegraph
 
Road
 
and
 
Huntington
 
Avenue
 
since
 
1971
 
and
 
we
 
are
 
seeing
 
the
 
adverse
 
impacts
 
of 
 
that
 
today.
 
The
 
lack
 
of 
 
improvements
 
and
 
investment
 
has
 
come
 
at
 
a
 
high
 
cost
 
for
 
area
 
businesses
 
and
 
residents.
 
In
 
1994,
 
my
 
predecessor,
 
Delegate
 
Toddy
 
Puller,
 
sponsored
 
successful
 
legislation
 
authorizing
 
the
 
U.S.
 
1
 
Centerline
 
Study
 
which
 
was
 
completed
 
in
 
the
 
fall
 
of 
 
2009.
 
However,
 
the
 
study
 
did
 
not
 
make
 
recommendations
 
for
 
a
 
new
 
alignment
 
of 
 
U.S.
 
1
 
in
 
our
 
district
 
between
 
Woodlawn
 
and
 
the
 
City
 
of 
 
Alexandria
 
due
 
to
 
Federal
 
Highway
 
Administration’s
 
requirement
 
for
 
a
 
transit
 
study
 
due
 
to
 
planned
 
rail
 
and
 
other
 
transit
 
improvements
 
in
 
the
 
corridor.
 
The
 
TIGER
 
II,
 
if 
 
allocated,
 
would
 
provide
 
the
 
study
 
necessary
 
to
 
complete
 
a
 
centerline
 
study
 
and
 
plan
 
for
 
long
term
 
changes
 
to
 
U.S.
 
1.
 
The
 
U.S.
 
1
 
Corridor
 
in
 
Fairfax
 
County
 
is
 
one
 
of 
 
the
 
most
 
economically
 
depressed
 
areas
 
of 
 
Fairfax
 
County.
 
Our
 
average
 
family
 
household
 
income
 
is
 
by
 
far
 
the
 
lowest
 
in
 
Fairfax
 
County,
 
and
 
we
 
have
 
not
 
seen
 
the
 
kind
 
of 
 
revitalization
 
that
 
transportation
 
improvements
 
such
 
as
 
Metro
 
and
 
light
 
rail
 
have
 
brought
 
to
 
other
 
areas.
 
The
 
Yellow
 
Line
 
of 
 
the
 
Metro
 
ends
 
at
 
the
 
very
 
northern
 
tip
 
of 
 
this
 
area,
 
but
 
could
 
be
 
extended
 
all
 
the
 
way
 
to
 
Fort
 
Belvoir
 
and
 
beyond
 
to
 
Woodbridge.
 
The
 
funding
 
and
 
completion
