Road Show to Feature Va. Transportation Projects
September 11, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Commonwealth Transportation Board is going on the road to field questions on the state's six-year-highway improvement plan.
In June, the board approved a final $13.1 billion transportation blueprint for Virginia over the next half-dozen years.
The board allocates funding for essential highway, bridge, rail and other transportation projects.
It has scheduled nine meetings around the state through October, with the first scheduled Sept. 23 in Lynchburg. Other stops include Chesapeake, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Weyers Cave, Culpeper, Fairfax, Roanoke and Bristol.
Besides listening to the public, the board will also explain the transportation improvements planned over the next six years.
