Multimodal Transportation Plan (VMTP)

Public Meeting

 

Please join us for an opportunity to help shape the VMTP Transportation Needs Assessment under VTrans2040, Virginia’s long-range statewide multimodal transportation plan. The event will be a series open house public meetings on July 22, 23, 28 and 29 (see schedule of forum locations and dates below).  

 

VTrans2040 is a vital project for clarifying Virginia’s transportation vision, goals, and objectives, and identifying the guiding principles and investments in infrastructure and services that will carry Virginia’s transportation system forward for the future. The Plan includes two major pieces – the VTrans2040 Vision and the VTrans2040 Multimodal Transportation Plan (VMTP).  The Virginia Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI) has been developing the VMTP, in particular the Transportation Needs Assessment.  This Needs Assessment takes on added importance as a result of House Bill 2. Only projects that help address a need identified in the statewide transportation plan will be considered for funding under the statewide prioritization process.

 

We need your input! The public meeting will include interactive discussions about the Regional Networks, Corridors of Statewide Significance (CoSS) and Urban Development Areas (UDAs). OIPI and its consultant team have already been working one-on-one with 15 regions in the Commonwealth through the MPOs in each region, and the purpose of this meeting is to bring several regions together to continue the discussions and get critical input from each region, as well as share information and updates relevant to the Transportation Needs Assessment. 

 

This meeting is an important opportunity to help shape the future of transportation in the Commonwealth.  We invite you to join us and share your ideas.
