RICHMOND — The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) will host nine meetings across Virginia and is inviting the public to share feedback on transportation projects that have been recommended for funding, as well as other transportation initiatives. Members of the community may participate by attending public meetings or submitting comments online, by email, or by mail.

The public will have an opportunity to learn and share feedback about:

The Draft Fiscal Year (FY) 2025-2030 Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP), which allocates public funds to highway, road, bridge, rail, bicycle, pedestrian, public transportation, and transportation demand management projects. The Draft FY 2025-2030 SYIP identifies projects proposed for inclusion in the final program, which will be before the CTB at its June meeting. All federally eligible projects in the SYIP will be included in the federally required Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) to document how Virginia will obligate its federal funds. The Draft FY 2025-2030 SYIP includes projects recommended for funding in the following programs:

  • Revenue Sharing – provides dollar-for-dollar state matching funds for use by a locality to construct, reconstruct, improve, or maintain the highway system
  • Transportation Alternatives – provides funding for non-traditional transportation projects that expand non‐motorized travel choices and improve the cultural, historical, and environmental aspects of transportation infrastructure
  • Safety – provides funding for safety improvements across the roadway network
  • Innovation and Technology Transportation Fund (ITTF) – provides funding for pilot programs and fully developed initiatives related to high-tech infrastructure improvements
  • State of Good Repair – provides funding for deteriorated pavements and structurally deficient bridges

Comments will also be accepted for new projects valued at more than $25 million.
