WASHINGTON — Arlington County, Va., is suing state and U.S. transportation officials to stop a high-occupancy toll lanes project on Interstate 395 and I-95, alleging an "arbitrary and capricious" failure to do adequate research on environmental and other impacts.

The lawsuit was filed two days after the Virginia Department of Transportation announced that it would delay the project this month partly due to "local government and community concerns, as well as challenging credit market conditions," but would continue working with stakeholders on the project.
