VA Transportation Approves $13 Billion Plan

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Commonwealth Transportation Board has approved a final six-year, $13.1 billion transportation blueprint for Virginia.
    
The board met Wednesday in Richmond and heard from Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
    
Earlier this year, the board staked out a plan that includes $9.9 billion earmarked for highway construction.
    
The board allocates funding for essential highway, bridge, rail and other transportation projects, starting July 1.
    
The program is updated annually to reflect the latest revenue projections and other priorities.
    
Besides highway construction, the plan allocates $3.2 billion for rail and public transportation.
    
The transportation plan went on a round of public meetings around the state before Wednesday's vote.
