A. Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Planning, Access Road, and Special Projects, $7,000,000 the first year and $7,000,000 the second year from the Commonwealth Transportation Fund shall be allocated for purposes set forth in §§ 33.2-1509, 33.2-1600, and 33.2-1510, Code of Virginia. Of this amount, the allocation for Recreational Access Roads shall be $1,500,000 the first year and $1,500,000 the second year, of which an amount up to $1,000,000 each year may be provided to repair or upgrade highway signage for Virginia State Parks, State Boat Landing Sites and Highway Historical Markers throughout the Commonwealth. The department will work with the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Department of Historic Resources to identify the related signage needs.


B. The Department of Transportation is encouraged to promote the construction and improvement of highways and transit facilities by localities, whether or not such improvements are contained in the Six-Year Improvement Program or Plan. If such improvements are not contained in the Six-Year Improvement Program or Plan, the localities may not seek reimbursement from the department for the improvements.


C. Distribution of Northern Virginia Transportation Authority Fund Revenues represents direct payments, of the revenue collected and deposited into the Fund, to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority for uses contained in Chapter 766, 2013 Acts of Assembly. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, moneys deposited into the Hampton Roads Transportation Fund shall be transferred to the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission for use in accordance with § 33.2-2611, Code of Virginia, which use may include as a source of funds for administrative expenses of the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission.


D. The prioritization process developed under subsection B of Chapter 726 of the 2014 Virginia Acts of Assembly shall not apply to use of funds provided in this item from federal apportionments in the Metropolitan Planning Program.


E. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the toll revenues, including any bond proceeds or concession payments backed by such toll revenues, derived from the express lanes on Interstate 64 between the interchange of Interstate 64 with Interstate 664 and the interchange of Interstate 64 with Interstate 564 be used to reduce the necessary contribution from the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission established pursuant Chapter 26 of Title 33.2, Code of Virginia, for a project to expand the capacity of Interstate 64 between the interchange of Interstate 64 with Interstate 664 and the interchange of Interstate 64 with Interstate 564.


F. Consistent with § 33.2-366, Code of Virginia, the Commonwealth Transportation Board, when establishing annual rates of payments to Counties that have elected to withdraw from the secondary highway system, shall adjust such rate annually with i) procedures established for adjusting payments to cities, and ii) lane mileage adjustments. It is the express intent of the General Assembly, that under no circumstance shall the addition of lane miles to one jurisdiction result in the direct or indirect reduction in the calculation of payment to any other jurisdiction receiving payment from funds appropriated for Financial Assistance for County Road Maintenance (60702).
