SUFFOLK—The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) is holding meetings across Virginia so the public may discuss projects and programs in the CTB’s current Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP) and provide comments for the development of the Fiscal Years 2015-2020 SYIP, including multimodal initiatives for highways, rail and transit.  

The meeting for the Hampton Roads Transportation District will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization Building, 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, VA 23320. The meeting will include an open house session with displays and general discussion from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and a public comment session beginning at 7 p.m.

During the open house, representatives from various state transportation agencies, Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Planning District Commissions will be available to provide information and highlight their transportation programs. Displays and handouts will be available at the meeting.

After the meetings, comments for highway projects can also be submitted through email or regular mail to Diane Mitchell, VDOT, 1401 E. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23219, or Six-YearProgram@VDOT.Virginia.gov, and to Public Information Officer, DRPT, 600 E.
