How the Projects Were Selected

The NVTA consists of local government leaders, state elected officials, and state agency officials who plan and direct transportation strategy for Northern Virginia Planning District Eight.  At its June 8, 2017 meeting, the NVTA asked local jurisdictions and agencies to submit projects for consideration using concession fee funds.;

The NVTA outlined several project requirements:

NVTA member jurisdictions and agencies submitted 26 projects totaling $1.2 billion from seven jurisdictions and agencies.  On July 7, 2017 the NVTA Planning and Programming Committee unanimously recommended 14 projects totaling an estimated $473.3 million, which the NVTA approved at its July 13 meeting. 

At its December 5, 2017 meeting, the CTB added another concession fee project – a series of improvements to Route 29 in Fairfax County between Shirley Gate Road and Pickwick Road – to the NVTA’s proposed list.  The CTB then recommended the 15 projects be included in the state’s Six Year Improvement Program (find additional information in this presentation).  On January 4, 2018, the CTB sponsored a public hearing to receive comment on adding the proposed projects to the Six Year Improvement Plan.
