HRTPO Guidance On House Bill 2

HRTPO Guidance On House Bill 2

House Bill 2 (HB2), signed into law in 2014, directed the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) to develop and use a prioritization process to select transportation projects.  The legislation is intended to improve the transparency and accountability of project selection, as well as improve stability in the Six-Year Improvement Program (SYIP).  The process is to score projects based on an objective analysis and provide guidance to the CTB for project selection and funding.  Following a year of development, the CTB approved the HB2 prioritization process during its meeting on June 17, 2015.

The HB2 process specifies eligible applicants for three project type categories, as shown in the following table:

Project Type
