Transportation basics

Transportation Basics

  • Roads are classified by type – Interstate, primary, secondary, or urban

  • Transit covers bus, light rail, and heavy rail activities

  • Virginia is divided into 9 “districts” through which money is allocated

  • There is no one person in charge – many stakeholders in funding and policy decision

Transportation funding

Transportation Funding

  • Federal funding provides another $1 billion per year

  • Total VDOT/DRPT annual funding of nearly $4 billion

  • Maintenance is the first “claim” on transportation funding

  • Entering 2011, maintenance and operations were consuming nearly all available funding

  • HB 3202 (2007) authorized $3 billion of bonds for transportation – only $492 million issued to date

  • Regional transportation funding initiatives have failed (2002) or ruled unconstitutional (2008)


Transportation policy decision making

Transportation Policy Decision Making

  • Interplay among federal, state, regional, and county governments

  • Federal government provides funding, sets design standards, and regulates environmental reviews for “federalized” projects

  • State government provides funding, lets construction contracts, inspects, and maintains

  • Regional governments assist with planning, funding for transit projects

  • Local governments provide construction, planning and maintenance services


Transportation policy decision making1

Transportation Policy Decision Making

  • In 1932, Virginia took control of county roads, but Arlington and Henrico opted out

  • Cities construct and maintain their own roads

  • Location and funding decisions driven by VDOT and Commonwealth Transportation Board

  • VDOT Central Office and northern Virginia office have significant role in administering maintenance and construction


Transportation and the 2011 session

Transportation and the 2011 Session

  • VDOT audit uncovers $1.5 billion of money

  • Governor proposes accelerating HB 3202 bonds

  • Create Virginia Transportation Infrastructure Bank

  • Increased emphasis on public private partnerships

  • Shift money into actual construction

  • 900 “illustrative” project list developed by VDOT

  • House and Senate have endorsed similar, yet competing versions of Governor’s proposal
