6 Numbers from NoVa’s Proposed 6-Year Transportation Plan

The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority will vote Thursday on projects to be included in its six-year transportation plan.

The vote comes after extensive comments and recommendations from the public and NVTA committees. Here’s a look at some key numbers to know about the plan.

44 - The total number of projects to be funded under the six-year transportation plan.

$1.285 billion - The total recommended spending for all projects in the six-year plan. That’s out of about $2.4 billion in requests.

$528.7 million - The value of the eight recommended projects in Fairfax County alone. This represents more than 41 percent of the total recommended spend. $250 million of this is dedicated to bus rapid transit. Another $67 million stems from the widening of Fairfax County Parkway from Ox Road to Lee Highway, and $127 million stems from the widening of Route 1.

$4 million - The recommended funds for Virginia Railway Express for Crystal City station improvements. The authority is not expected to approve another $27 million for third track improvements near Woodbridge Station.

$11 million - Funds for the lengthening of Summit School Road and Widening of Telegraph Road in Prince William County. This recommendation came from the Planning and Programming Committee after other committees recommended zero funding.

$39 million - The money to be set aside for maintenance and improvements to ART buses in Arlington.
