Supporters say private projects keep costs down and can get the job done more quickly, but opponents say drivers on such roads will probably have to pay tolls.

A law was passed ten years ago to encourage more privately-built roads, but so far only one project has been completed: the Pocahontas Parkway near Richmond.

AAA Mid-Atlantic has traditionally opposed such projects, but is now coming around to the idea thanks to gridlock in Northern Virginia.
