Public Notices 

The HRTPO public involvement and community outreach process provides the review of transportation plans and programs as they are being developed and as they go into HRTPO’s approval process.  The opportunity to review and comment on the documents, plans and programs is advertised through the HRTPO website, social media, media advisories to regional news providers, messages to HRTPO’s list of interested parties, distribution to the member jurisdictions, advertisements at the office location, and via mail to partner organizations for posting at their locations.  The HRTPO provides a public review and comment period of no less than 14 days for LRTP and TIP updates, the associated regional Conformity Analyses (RCA) for Air Quality,and special studies and reports developed by the HRTPO staff.

The public participation and notification processes of the HRTPO satisfy the individual public participation policies of HRTPO planning partners in accordance with Federal regulations and guidelines.  To view Public Notice Translations, Access to LEP and Accessibility Guidelines and more, click here.

HRTPO 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan Amendment


The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, is amending the HRTPO 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).  The amendment process includes an opportunity for public review and comment.

Hampton Roads Crossing Study – Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

The current 2040 LRTP, adopted in July 2016, includes $4.8 billion for Phase 1 of the Locally-Preferred Alternative of the Hampton Roads Crossing Study Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (HRCS SEIS).  On October 20, 2016, the HRTPO Board unanimously approved Alternative A, which widens I-64 to six lanes from I-64/I-664 at the Hampton Coliseum to I-64/I-564 and includes improvements to the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT), as the Locally Preferred Alternative.  Alternative A is estimated to cost approximately $4.031 in year-of-expenditure dollars, leaving $769 million in regional planning funds to fiscally-constrain additional regionally-significant projects.  In addition to Alternative A, the HRTPO Board unanimously approved the inclusion of the Bowers Hill Interchange and a study to further evaluate the remaining segments of Alternative D.  The Commonwealth Transportation Board is scheduled to take formal action on the Locally Preferred Alternative on December 7, 2016.

Virginia Beach Light Rail Extension to Town Center

With the removal of $155 million in state funds on the Virginia Beach LRT transit extension to the Virginia Beach Town Center, this project is no longer fiscally-constrained for construction.
