VDOT LYNCHBURG DISTRICT TO HOST PUBLIC HEARING ON THE DRAFT SIX-YEAR IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

LYNCHBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), Lynchburg District will host a public hearing on May 15 to discuss the draft Six-Year Improvement Program. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the VDOT Lynchburg District Training Center, 4303 Campbell Avenue, Lynchburg, VA 24501.

The Six-Year Improvement Program allocates funding to essential highway, bridge, rail, transit, transportation demand management, bicycle and pedestrian projects across the state over the next six fiscal years beginning July 1, 2014. The program is updated each year to reflect latest revenue projections and other priorities.
