New - Call for applications for the FY2017 funds underway

The CTB established two new programs to distribute funding available through Section 33.2-358 also referred to as the CTB formula funds.

Primary Extension Paving Funds

Based on a legislative change that was effective July 1st, 2014, Section 33.2-358 provides that Primary Extensions maintained by municipalities can receive a portion of the reconstruction and paving allocations previously only distributed to Interstates and Primary Roads with a combined condition index of less than 60. VDOT has developed The CTB approved a new program to address this Code change at their June 2014 Board meeting and an application process was initiated to allow municipalities to apply for this funding for qualifying projects.Please note: With the implementation of MAP-21, FHWA has placed an increased emphasis on the maintenance and operation of the National Highway System (NHS).  Accordingly, condition data was only collected for NHS routes, and VDOT is limiting the eligibility of the FY17 Primary Extension funding to Primary Extensions Routes on the NHS only.  Last year, a portion of FY17 funds were allocated to advance the paving of existing deficient pavements. If you are interested in applying for these funds, key information about what qualifies and how to apply is below:

High Volume Unpaved Road Funds

§33.2-358 of the Code of Virginia authorizes the set-aside of unpaved road funds for providing a hard-surface to unpaved roads with traffic volumes over 50 vehicles per day.  In June 2014, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) began to set aside a portion of these funds to address high volume unpaved roads, which are defined as unpaved roads with a traffic count greater than 500 vehicles per day.  Allocations are awarded annually by the CTB based on applications submitted by Counties.  Information about the application process, qualifying routes, and previous years’ allocations is below.

A call for applications for both of these programs for FY2017 funding is currently underway with applications due to the local VDOT Residency or District office by Friday, March 18, 2016 for submittal to the Local Assistance Division by Friday, March 25, 2016.
