  Capital Beltway (I-495 and I-95)
The Capital Beltway is the 64-mile-long Interstate freeway that encircles Washington, D.C., passing through Virginia and Maryland, carrying the Interstate I-495 designation throughout, and carrying the overlapping Interstate I-95 designation on the eastern portion of the beltway.
In 1991-92, Maryland and Virginia completed Beltway widening to eight lanes from I-270 Spur to VA-193, a distance of 5 miles; this included the American Legion Bridge and approaches to each interchange closest to the river, which was widened to 10 lanes.
The interchange between Shirley Highway (I-95, I-395) and the Capital Beltway (I-95, I-395, I-495) and between VA-644 and I-95, is being reconstructed and expanded.

  Final Report Capital Beltway Update: Beltway User Focus Groups
The Capital Beltway is 64 miles of roadway surrounding Washington, D.C. The Capital Beltway Safety Team, led by officials from Maryland and Virginia, was formed to address safety issues on this urban interstate highway.
The primary purpose of the present project was to reassess Beltway drivers' perceptions of problems they experience on the Beltway and to document their reactions to recent improvements.
With a view toward determining how Beltway drivers' perceptions have changed since 1994, the basic structure of the 1994 focus groups was replicated in the current wave, with a few changes to enhance the sensitivity of the research to the topic of aggressive driving.

 Capital Beltway (I-495 and I-95)
The beltway also was to serve as a critical route for military vehicles in the event of an attack.
The Capital Beltway finally received a break in 1954 when Congress approved construction of what would eventually become the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, followed a year later by construction approval from the National Capital Park and Planning Commission, in conjunction with the state highway departments of Maryland and Virginia.
In the years immediately following the beltway's inclusion into the Interstate highway system, Virginia highway officials appeared more earnest to begin construction, while their counterparts in Maryland appeared content to wait until the second half of the 1960's to begin construction, after the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) was completed.

 The Beltway
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is conducting a study to widen the Capitol Beltway (I-495) in two stages.
Virginia's 2020 Transportation Plan's call for a 12-lane Beltway is totally out of synch with Maryland's plan for its portion of the Beltway.
Because of the large number of comments VDOT received regarding the physical impacts associated with the proposed improvements, the department has decided to evaluate modifications that would reduce the size of the project, particularly at interchanges.

Beltway 8 has an outstanding collection of modern 4 and 5 level stacks - possibly the best in the country.
Beltway 8 is unique in that the feeder roads for both BW8 and intersecting freeways proceed underneath all the stacks, either at grade or one level below grade.
This means that level 5, for example, may cross the level 4 ramps and a point where level 4 is not at its highest point.

 Stop Beltway Widening :: DC Metro Sprawl   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Widening the Beltway with four new lanes is not a long term solution to reduce congestion in Northern Virginia.
Beltway HOT lanes will increase the number of cars on the road, which will only compound congestion on our local streets and worsen smog and soot pollution from our automobiles.
In order to keep up with this increased demand, the Beltway HOT lanes tolls would skyrocket to keep traffic moving, and the commute in the non-express lanes would be just as bad as it was before.

Because Cegelis is precisely the kind of progressive candidate the Beltway Democrats are afraid of: she is a progressive, anti-war, pro-choice, pro-renewable energy, pro-universal health care and opposes NAFTA-like trade deals.
The Beltway Democrats, who relieve themselves in their pants every time Republicans question their patriotism, have decided that a winning political strategy rests on rolling out a large pool of candidates who are military veterans.

 Inside the Beltway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It refers to the Capital Beltway (Interstate 495), a beltway that encircles Washington, D.C., and is meant to invoke matters that are important primarily within the offices of the Federal government, its contractors, lobbyists, and the media which cover them.
The phrase is often pejorative, a dismissive or insulting way to say "it's merely politics, not important," carrying the implication that the only people who care are paid by or otherwise dependent upon the federal government.
This phrase is often used to mean the rough equivalent of possessing inside knowledge about American governance and the workings of American representative democracy, or having access to corridors of political power.

 Outer-Beltway Projects
An Outer Beltway would not serve commuters because few people travel in a loop around the outer edge of the region.
Several concepts for an Outer Beltway have been floated by speculative developers with an interest in developing the DC region's rural areas in Stafford, Fauquier, Prince William, Loudoun, Montgomery, Frederick and Prince George's Counties.

 Interstate 495
Some wags (no one in an official position, however) are proposing renumbering the Capital Beltway to Interstate 666, to signify the depravity (political, cultural, fiscal, whatever) thriving inside its confines.
For 11 years, the entire Beltway was numbered I-495 only; I-95 was planned to pass straight through, close to downtown Washington.
In the 2002 FHWA highway log, however, there is no overlap: the eastern half of the beltway is I-95 only.
