The third round of the Smart Scale transportation prioritization process is now in the validation and review phase under the direction of the Commonwealth Transportation Board, Secretary of Transportation's office, and Virginia Department of Transportation. Applications for this round were submitted by the August 8th deadline from eligible local governments and regional organizations.
From the Rappahannock-Rapidan region, applications for 15 projects will be under consideration for funding through the High-Priority Projects and Construction District Grant programs. Applications for funding to support projects in Culpeper County, Fauquier County, Madison County, and Orange County, as well as the Town of Culpeper and Town of Gordonsville were submitted.
Validation and review will be completed in the Fall and preliminary scores for each application are expected to be released in January 2019. Following review and public participation in the Spring, the Commonwealth Transportation Board will consider selected projects for inclusion in the FY 2020-2025 Six-Year Improvement Program.
