Item 451 #1h

Item 451 #1h

Department of Transportation


Page 472, after line 1, insert:

"E. The Department of Transportation shall conduct an evaluation of the conditions of city streets. The evaluation shall include (i) an assessment of the current conditions of pavements and bridges on city-maintained streets throughout the Commonwealth, (ii) a review of the current formula used for distributing city street payments including comparisons of age, condition, vehicles miles traveled relative to per mile payments, (iii) opportunities for efficiency through partnerships with the Department, and (iv) recommendations, if any, for revisions to the formula for the distribution of city street payments. The evaluation shall be complete no later than December 1, 2023."


(This amendment inserts language that was originally included in Item 456 requiring VDOT to conduct an evaluation of the condition of city streets. A companion amendment inserts the language into Item 451 of the budget which funds VDOTs planning and research services. The 2021 JLARC study of Transportation found there is no central collection of pavement conditions on secondary or other urban roads. While many localities collect this data for their own planning purposes, collection and reporting methods vary.)
