The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding information sessions about new regulations that establish uniform statewide standards for traffic impact analyses of land-use proposals that will substantially impact the state-controlled transportation network. The intent of the regulations is to improve the coordination between land-use and transportation planning decisions by providing information to local government officials and citizens. Dates, times, and locations for the sessions are:
Monday, March 12
9 a.m. to noon - Prince William County Board Room, James J. McCoart Administration Bldg., 1 County Complex, Woodbridge, VA 22192
2 p.m. to 5 p.m. - Fairfax County South Government Center, Room 221, 8350 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, VA 22309
Tuesday, March 13
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Loudoun County Gov't Center Board Room, 1 Harrison St., S.E., Leesburg, VA 20175
Details about the regulations and the draft guidelines for traffic analysis and more can be found at: www.vdot.virginia.gov/projects/chapter527 and at VDOT’s Northern Virginia District Office at Avion Lakeside I, 14685 Avion Parkway, Chantilly, VA 20151
The sessions are for those in local municipal and county government, planning and the transportation and development industries who will be involved in the land development process and would benefit from an overview of the regulations and their implementation. Training sessions for those directly involved with the implementation of the regulations will be held later this year. Please attend the information session most convenient to your location and schedule.
