UPDATED SCHEDULE: Public Input Sought On Transportation Projects

RICHMOND, Va. – The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) is holding nine meetings across the commonwealth through November where the public will have the opportunity to get the latest information, ask questions and provide input on the prioritization of transportation projects.
The meetings consist of an open house where attendees can review and provide feedback on the list of proposed local and regional projects that have been submitted for scoring through SMART SCALE, an objective and data-driven prioritization process to score projects according to critical transportation needs. The meetings will highlight the 468 applications for projects submitted by 158 local and regional governments across the state. 
Following the open house, a town hall session will engage public and transportation stakeholders in discussion and provide an opportunity to ask questions about transportation projects and priorities. There will be no formal public comment during the meetings.
Projects that have been determined to meet a need identified in VTrans, Virginia’s statewide transportation policy plan, will be advanced for evaluation and scoring. Scoring results will be made available to the public in January 2019.  Following public meetings in the spring, the CTB will use public feedback and the scoring data to select which projects to fund and be included in the next Six-Year Improvement Program by June of 2019.
