The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) provided an update on the Hampton Roads Regional Priority Projects to the HRTPO Board at the April 2017 Board meeting.  The Hampton Roads Regional Transportation Priority Projects were originally identified by the HRTPO Board at its October 17, 2013 meeting.  The projects were sequenced based upon their project readiness in February 2016 and subsequently included in the fiscally-constrained 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan, approved by the Board at its July 2016 meeting.  The projects are listed by current status, estimated completion date, and estimated cost.

 

There are two projects under construction on the Peninsula and one on the Southside with an estimated cost totaling nearly $471 million.
