Has yours made plans to join us for 2016?
In August 2015, the Authority embarked on a major update to TransAction 2040, the first in the post-HB 2313 (2013) era. This update is significant as all projects funded with the 70% regional revenues, as provided in the historic HB 2313 (2013) transportation funding bill, must be in the Authority's long-range transportation plan. HB 2313 generates an estimated $300 million annually in local and regional transportation funding to Northern Virginia.
The updated plan -- to be known simply as TransAction -- will be adopted in late summer/early fall of 2017 and will inform the Authority's inaugural Six Year Program covering the FY2018-23 period. The update process is expected to last two years. When adopted, the TransAction update will provide a multi-modal guide for transportation investments in Northern Virginia and will be the mechanism through which over $1 billion will be allocated to much needed regional transportation improvements through fiscal years 2018-2023.
