The Commonwealth Transportation Board will host nine public meetings across the commonwealth so that the public may provide comments on transportation projects and priorities. This year’s meetings will consist of an Open House format where attendees can review and provide feedback on the list of proposed local and regional projects that have been submitted for consideration for scoring through round two of SMART SCALE (formerly known as HB2) prioritization process. Following the Open House, a town hall style format will be provided where the public and transportation stakeholders can engage in discussion and ask questions about the projects. There will be no formal public comment*.

HB2 or Virginia House Bill 2, signed by Governor Terry McAuliffe on April 6, 2014 and effective as of July 1, 2014, required the development of a prioritization process and directed the CTB to develop and use a scoring process for project selection by July 2016. The first round of the prioritization process was completed in June 2016 and round two kicked off on August 1, 2016. For more information on SMART SCALE please visit www.smartscale.org.
