Public Meetings Funding the Right Transportation Projects You are invited to share comments on transportation projects that have been recommended for funding in the FY2021-2026 Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP). Additionally, pursuant to §33.2-202, comments will be accepted for new projects valued in excess of $25 million. The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) will consider your comments as it develops the FY2021-2026 Six-Year Improvement Program. The program allocates public funds to highway, road, bridge, rail, bicycle, pedestrian, and public transportation projects. All federally eligible projects in the SYIP will be included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program to document how Virginia will obligate its federal funds. Meeting materials will be available at http://www.ctb.virginia.gov/planning/fallmeetings/default.asp beginning November 13, 2020. These projects will be discussed at the start of the Nov. 24, 2020, public meeting of the CTB, which will be conducted using electronic communications in accordance with Item 4-0.01.g. of Chapter 1289 (2020 Acts of Assembly), as the COVID-19 emergency makes it impracticable or unsafe to assemble in a single location. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss or transact the business statutorily required or necessary to continue operation of the CTB and the discharge of its lawful purposes, duties and responsibilities. All board members will be participating remotely. The public may view the meeting via live stream by clicking the "View stream" button at the following link: http://www.ctb.virginia.gov/public_meetings/live_stream/default.asp. There will be opportunity for public comment following the presentation of projects at the start of the CTB workshop meeting. When announced, public comment can be made by calling 470-285-4495, followed by PIN 392 182 855#. Callers will be placed on hold until others in queue ahead of them have had the opportunity to speak. In the event there is an interruption in the meeting broadcast, call 804-729-6495. The public is invited to share feedback on transportation projects that have been recommended for funding through participation in this virtual public meeting or submitting comments through the online form, by email, or by posted mail by Dec. 3, 2020.
