Public Involvement Process for Transportation Planning and Programming
Each day you are affected by some facet of transportation and the decisions made by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). Have you ever wondered how you can influence those transportation decisions?
The document Public Involvement: Your Guide to Participating in the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes explains the planning and programming processes, which are the beginning stages of all transportation projects, and the various activities in which citizens can participate and influence plans years before individual project level work begins.
The guide on public involvement in the transportation planning and programming process is periodically updated. A new draft update, Public Involvement in Virginia’s Transportation Planning and Programming Process, is available now for public review and comment.
Written comments are requested and will be accepted if they are received by no later than 4 p.m., Oct. 22, 2012, at StatewidePlans@governor.virginia.gov or, for delivery by standard mail, at:
