State officials have a plan which includes how to improve roads, rail systems, and bike paths throughout Virginia.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) have developed the 2035 Virginia Surface Transportation Plan, which provides long-term multimodal transportation suggestions for the commonwealth.
The draft plan was made available for public review and comment from June 16, 2010, through July 30, 2010.
The 2035 Virginia Surface Transportation Plan represents the first time VDOT and DRPT have organized multimodal proposals in a single plan.
The plan provides information for potential long-term project development and investment based on the goals identified in VTrans2035, Virginia’s statewide multimodal transportation policy plan.
The draft plan includes possible improvements to transit, rail, freight, highway and intelligent transportation systems.
Transportation needs identified in the plan are used to help determine highway projects for the Six-Year Improvement Plan.
