RICHMOND – Nine public meetings will be held throughout the state this fall so that citizens may review and comment on potential (“candidate”) transportation projects and programs to be included in the Commonwealth Transportation Board’s (CTB) Six-Year Improvement Program for Fiscal Years 2009-2014. CTB members will host the meetings, and representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) will be present to provide information and answer questions.

Candidate projects include interstate highway, primary road, rail, bicycle, pedestrian and public transportation initiatives. These projects and programs will emphasize improvements to Virginia’s transportation system in the areas of safety, bridges, congestion and major maintenance. Displays and handouts at the meetings will describe the projects and programs. Citizens and officials are encouraged to attend and provide input to the CTB for its consideration in updating the Six-Year Improvement Program.

Verbal and written comments will be accepted throughout the meetings. The agenda is as follows:

· 5-6 p.m. – Briefing for public officials

· 6-6:30 p.m. – Open house and general discussion

· 6:30 p.m. – Moderated public meeting

A draft of the new Six-Year Improvement Program will be available next spring, and public hearings will be held before the program is finalized by July 1, 2008.
