Page 381, after line 39, insert:

"I. Out of the amounts provided in this item for highway construction programs, $5,849,374 shall be directed to fund construction of project UPC 86442, the widening of State Route 711 in Powhatan County from two lanes to four lanes between the Route 288 interchange to approximately 0.04 miles East of the Powhatan County and Chesterfield County line."


(This amendment directs VDOT to utilize $5.8 million of its existing construction funds to fully fund the widening of Route 711 in Powhatan County. The project has been funded through preliminary engineering and right-of-way acquisition in the current Six Year Improvement Program but the construction allocation is insufficient to complete the project.)
