Page 650, strike Section 4-5.11 and insert:


In order to implement and maintain traffic and pedestrian operational safety and security enhancements and secure the seat of government, the Commonwealth Transportation Board shall, not later than January 1, 2020, add to the state primary highway system, pursuant to § 33.2-314, Code of Virginia, those portions of the rights-of-way located in the City of Richmond identified as Bank Street from 9th Street to 14th Street, 10th Street from Main Street to Bank Street, 12th Street from Main Street to Bank Street, and Governor Street from Main Street to Bank Street and, pursuant to the responsibilities of the Department of General Services (DGS) (§ 2.2-1129) and the Division of Capitol Police (DCP) (§ 30-34.2:1), DGS and DCP shall control those rights-of-way and pedestrian and vehicular traffic thereon. The rights-of-way so transferred shall be in addition to the 50 miles per year authorized to be transferred under § 33.2-314(A).  The City of Richmond shall transfer fee ownership of the rights-of-way identified in this section to DGS by deed or other instrument, as determined by DGS."


(This amendment modifies existing language to address the transfer of rights-of-way having to do with Seat of Government security and resolves conflict between the two, in a companion amendment in Item C-74.)
