3 10:10-10:40 VTrans Process Update – Chris Wichman, OIPI

The next update of VTrans – Virginia’s mid- and long-range multimodal transportation plan – provides the overarching vision for development, preservation, and maintenance of Virginia’s transportation system. VTrans
identifies transportation needs which are used as eligibility criteria for SMART SCALE and other funding programs. The Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI) is assisting the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) in the development of the VTrans update.

On January 15, 2019, OIPI provided a presentation to the Charlottesville-Albermarle MPO Technical Advisory Committee to kickoff the VTrans update and overview the approach. Additionally, OIPI hosted a public open house prior to the Culpeper District SYIP Public Hearing held at the VDOT Culpeper District Office on May 6, 2019 (link to meeting materials).

This presentation will provide more detail on the identification of VTrans Needs, including the measures, methods and upcoming timeline for engagement at the regional and local level. The CTB is expected to adopt updated VTrans Needs at their December 2019 meeting. The updated VTrans Needs will be used as an eligibility screening criteria for SMART SCALE Round 4.
