|Action Summary||The regulation needs to be updated to reflect the elimination of formula funds, notably the urban construction allocation to localities referenced in the regulation. Chapter 684 of the 2015 Acts of Assembly amended § 33.2-358 of the Code of Virginia by changing the previous construction formula distribution – 40% to the primary system, 30% to the secondary system, and 30% to the urban system – to the current process which no longer utilizes an urban construction allocation. This change to the distribution formula applied to funds allocated for fiscal years beginning on and after July 1, 2020. Further, § 33.2-362 of the Code of Virginia, which outlined the allocation of construction funds for urban system highways, was repealed by Chapter 684 of the 2015 Acts of Assembly. The current programs for funding projects in the urban system of highways are outlined in Chapter 3.4 of the Urban Construction and Maintenance Manual. This Manual, adopted by VDOT, can be found by the public on Virginia’s Regulatory Town Hall (www.townhall.virginia.gov) under VDOT’s Guidance Documents and on the VDOT website (www.virginiadot.org) on the Local Assistance Division’s Urban Highways page.|
