Eligibility of Primary Extensions for CTB Formula Projects (language only)

Item 444 #2h

Item 444 #2h

Transportation, Department of

Page 381, after line 3, insert:
"G. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Code of Virginia, reconstruction of primary roads in cities and towns that maintain their own roadways shall qualify as eligible projects for funding under the construction allocation formula articulated in § 33.1-23.1, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment clarifies that primary extensions are eligible as projects under the provisions adopted by the 2012 General Assembly that allow for the use of $500 million off the top of the state transportation funds for particular projects. Under a VDOT administrative interpretation, primary road projects that are located in cities and towns that maintain their own roads are not eligible for reconstruction funding even if such road conditions have deteriorated to such an extent as to have a combined condition index of less than 60. This language simply clarifies that the intent of the General Assembly was not to exclude cities and towns.)
