Hearing set Jan. 5 at NRCC

RICHMOND – The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) has scheduled five public hearings to be held around the state in January so that citizens may review potential revisions to the Six-Year Improvement Program for Fiscal Years 2009-2014.
This mid-year revision of the fiscal year 2009-2014 program is in response to transportation revenue reductions of more than $2.6 billion resulting from the downturn in the economy.
A public hearing is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 5, at New River Community College in Dublin.
The hearing begins at 6 p.m.
CTB members will host the hearings, 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.
“We are holding this unusual mid-year revision of the six-year program because of the significant changes in the official transportation revenue estimate,” said Secretary of Transportation Pierce Homer.
“While this revised plan cuts $1.2 billion from our six-year program, we know that additional cuts of approximately $400 million will be necessary before this plan is brought before the CTB in January,” he said.
These reductions are a result of reductions in the official state transportation revenues and in addition to $1.1 billion in cuts made last June when the six-year plan was approved.
All transportation agencies are making other reductions in the programs and services they provide.
Lists of specific projects and changes from the current program will be available at each public hearing, on VDOT and DRPT’s Web site at www.vdot.virginia.gov and www.drpt.virginia.gov, and at VDOT district and residency offices prior to the hearing.
Except where noted, each hearing begins at 6 p.m. Please attend the hearing that is most convenient for you.
The districts of focus for each meeting are listed after the meeting location.
Verbal and written comments will be accepted throughout the hearings.
During the comment period, individuals may speak for up to three minutes.
Groups and organizations each should designate one member to speak.
Those who cannot attend may send comments after the hearing for up to 10 calendar days to: Public Information Office; Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation; 1313 E. Main St., Suite 300; Richmond, VA 23219.
