What's in the VTrans Mid-Term Plan?

Based upon data-driven analyses and input from residents, businesses, and communities across the Commonwealth, the mid-term plan includes an analysis of economic issues and opportunities, an assessment of critical needs, and a blueprint of strategies to optimize transportation investments during the coming ten years.

Why update the Mid-Term Plan?

The CTB and transportation agencies use the mid-term plan as an essential reference for screening and selecting projects to be prioritized in the SMART SCALE program as well as agency business plans and funding of projects in the six-year transportation improvement plan.

What are the VTrans2040 Mid-Term Recommendations?

The VTrans2040 Mid-Term Plan, titled the Virginia Multimodal Transportation Plan (VMTP) 2025 Needs Assessment, identifies needs and recommendations for investments through the year 2025. The strategies are focused on improving traveler safety, accessibility, and mobility in order to advance economic, environmental, and community development goals throughout the Commonwealth and within three types of "travel markets:" Corridors of Statewide Significance (COSS), which serve interregional travel; Regional Networks, which serve metropolitan regions; and Urban Development Areas (UDA), which focus on local activity centers.
