"City of Virginia Beach - Norfolk Southern       $0      $10,000,000".

(This amendment provides $10 million the second year from the general fund to the City of Virginia Beach for the purchase of right-of-way from Norfolk Southern. The City of Virginia Beach received $10 million in 2005 to use for the purchase of bus rapid transit vehicles. Because of the ability of the vehicles in question, the City wishes to transfer that funding to purchase right-of-way from Norfolk Southern in the City of Virginia Beach. This way-of-way would be used for multi-mobile corridor including the bike trail and possible extension of the starter light rail project now about to begin in the City of Norfolk. The right-of-way goes from Norfolk City line to Birdneck Road in Virginia Beach.)
