Public Participation 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 Participation in Virginia’s Transportation Planning and Programming Process, 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. To checkout the public participation guide, click here.

The guide on public participation in the transportation planning and programming process is periodically updated.
