Locally Administered Projects “Starter Pack” (Getting Started Guide)
The starter pack was developed to improve local governments' understanding of the requirements associated with administering a transportation project.
The starter pack is coined as a “Beginners Guide to Locally Administered Projects,” and is intended as a getting-started resource for local government project managers and others that may be new or have limited familiarity with the expectations and requirements to administer a transportation project.
The guide briefly outlines the major components, processes and procedures necessary to administer a transportation project, but should NOT be used as a substitute to the comprehensive Locally Administered Projects Manual.
Locally Administered Projects Manual
The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance and direction to all stakeholders, outline federal requirements for those localities choosing to administer Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)-funded projects, with an emphasis on federal aid, and provide guidance to VDOT staff assigned an oversight role for locally administered projects.
The highway laws of Virginia has been recodified, effective Oct. 1, 2014. Section 33.1 has been re-numbered to Section 33.2.
