Item 427 #1h

Secretary of Transportation

Page 399, after line 14, insert:
"N. In programming funds for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of structurally deficient bridges pursuant to § 33.2-358 C.(i), Code of Virginia, the Board shall consider both state and locally-owned bridges."

(This amendment directs the Commonwealth Transportation Board to include municipally-owned structurally deficient bridges in its selection of projects being funded with the portion of the "CTB formula" funds dedicated to structurally deficient bridges. The Code provisions include municipally-owned primary extensions but failed to reference bridges on the same roadway sections.)
