Staunton District Legislative Update - Fall 2018
Randy Kiser, P.E.
I am pleased to present the Fall 2018 Staunton District Legislative Update.
In August 2018 the Smart Scale application process closed for Round 3 new application submittals. The Staunton District had 71 applications that were completed by the deadline. The Virginia Department of Transportation staff is currently working on cost estimates and application validation. Once validation is complete, applications that are eligible for scoring will advance. Scores will be released in early 2019.
Our next issue of the Staunton District Legislative Update will be provided to you during summer 2019. At that time we will have a complete listing of projects that scored well enough to be included in the Six Year Improvement Plan, which is finalized in June 2019.
This issue of the Legislative Update includes a listing of the 71 projects submitted for the Round 3 application process. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or need additional details about these applications.
Since December 2017 we have completed several major projects. These listings have been removed in this issue but we want to acknowledge these significant construction milestones:
