Arlington asked VDOT to include a provision in the contract forcing Transurban to manage the road to keep traffic flowing at the speed limit, 55 inside the Beltway and 65 outside. But VDOT refused.

FWIW, the speed limit in the I-95/395 HOV lanes is 65 mph from a point just south of the Pentagon Mixing Bowl interchange (specifically, from just south of the ramp to/from the part VA-27 that runs past the Pentagon) all the way down to the southern end of the express lanes near Dumfries. Only the small portion from the 14th Street Bridge to that spot is posted at 55. (I remember when they raised it to 65. I didn't ever expect to see VDOT posting a 65-mph speed limit inside the Beltway.)
