The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority will decide next month on which transportation projects will be included in the authority’s six-year plan, after recently closing the public comment period.
The NVTA said it will vote on June 14 after a detailed review of 60 projects vying for funding as part of the 2018-2023 plan.
The authority received more than 1,000 public comments on the proposed projects. Now, the authority’s Planning Coordination Advisory Committee, the Technical Advisory Committee and the Planning and Programming Committee will review the public comments and provide each project a “Congestion Reduction Relative to Cost” score.
The 60 projects under consideration represent about $2.5 billion in funding requests and call for a wide range of proposed transportation improvements including road widening, upgrades to bike and pedestrian access and Metro station improvements.
