SHARE YOUR INPUT ON TRANSPORTATION PRIORITIES
Feedback welcomed at public meeting on Monday, May 1
RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) welcomes residents and stakeholders in central Virginia to share comments on transportation projects that have been recommended for funding through Virginia’s SMART SCALE process. This data-driven prioritization process was used to score more than 400 transportation projects statewide, including 72 received from localities and regional planning bodies within VDOT’s Richmond District.
A public hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, May 1 at the VDOT Richmond District Office, located at 2430 Pine Forest Drive in Colonial Heights. Comments are also welcomed by email to Six-YearProgram@VDOT.Virginia.gov or by mail to VDOT Infrastructure Investment Director, 1401 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23219. The comment deadline is May 16.
Public comments will be considered by the Commonwealth Transportation Board as it develops the Six-Year Improvement Program for fiscal years 2018-2023. The SYIP allocates public funds to highway, road, bridge, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and public transportation projects.
