Virginia board slates hearings for $12.9 billion in transportation projects

Virginia's Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) yesterday released the draft of a six-year plan to allocate $12.9 billion for transportation projects, including $3.4 billion for rail and public transportation.

The proposed Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) supports nearly 3,000 transportation projects designed to improve the state's infrastructure over the next six fiscal years starting July 1. The projects involve highways, roads, bridges, rail, transit and bicycle/pedestrian paths.

The CTB has slated public hearings on the draft this month and next. The hearings begin April 21 and conclude May 11. Comments may be submitted via email or mail by May 22.
