A public meeting held on the evening of Tuesday, March 20, 2012, will kick off a three-day Federal Certification Review of the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) . The review, slated to run from March 20, 2012 to March 22, 2012, will be conducted by The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in partnership with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
The certification review is conducted in order to determine if the HRTPO’s transportation planning process adequately addresses major issues facing Hampton Roads in accordance with applicable Federal regulations, and will also assess the cooperative planning process between the HRTPO, transit operators, local governments, and state agencies.
During the public meeting, which will be held in the board room of the Regional Building, 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake VA, members of the public will be invited to express their views on the transportation planning process being conducted in Hampton Roads.
