Even still the HOT lanes doesn't really need to be 2-way south of the Beltway, as most of the employment centers are either inside the Beltway or just outside of it. There aren't that many people commuting from Arlington/Fairfax/etc to Fredericksburg for work.

There are often delays on weekends when two-way traffic on the HOT lanes would be very useful.

Yes, but a GP lane in each direction would be more helpful.

Pretty sure the chance of that is about zero.

Why is that? Is Virginia not adding GP lanes anymore in urban areas?

Seems to be the trend nowadays.

I know I was seen doing around 79-81 in a 65, and the trooper didn't even glance.

I've yet to travel the Beltway toll lanes.

The troopers are pretty much there to catch HOV and truck restriction violations rather than deal with sub-misdemeanor (>85mph) speeding tickets.

I think I've seen more semi's get pulled over in the HOT lanes than actual cars.
