The Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI) presented the SMART SCALE Round 3 DRAFT Funding Scenario to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) on January 15th. The draft scenario selects the top scoring projects until remaining District Grant Program and High Priority Project funds are insufficient to fund the next highest scoring project. For more information on how a project scored, or how to read the scorecards, please visit the SMART SCALE website “Projects” page here: http://vasmartscale.org/projects/default.asp
The VDOT Staunton Construction district did very well overall, with a total of $28.5 million in funding for 16 projects recommended. Of that total, the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commision’s five-county region received $14.7 million in total funding for 9 projects.
SAWMPO Staff will continue to follow the project selection process and share updates as the CTB works toward a draft FY 2020 Six Year Improvement Program (SYIP) in the spring, and then adopts the SYIP in June 2019.
