The West Virginia Department of Transportation will hold informational public meetings throughout the state on the draft of the Statewide Multi-modal Long-Range Transportation Plan, a 25-year transportation outlook.
The plan takes inventory of the state’s modal infrastructure and identifies the physical assets under the direct control of each agency of the WVDOT. It reviews historic funding expenditure types and levels corresponding with each revenue source and mode to develop a 25-year revenue transportation forecast. For the Division of Highways, a review of how projects are prioritization was conducted.
The second of two rounds of eight workshop public meetings will be conducted to insure public input into the draft plan’s recommendations and strategies. The meetings will afford participants the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on how state and federal fiscal resources should be spent in future years for all modes of transportation.
