HRTPO Project Prioritization Tool:  Recommended Enhancements

The HRTPO Project Prioritization Tool was developed to assist regional decision-makers in prioritizing transportation projects based off technical merits and regional benefits, evaluating projects based on Project Utility, Economic Vitality, and Project Viability.  The Tool, which has been used in the past two Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) updates and in the identification of the Regional Priority Projects, was designed to be updated periodically to reflect current conditions and regional priorities.

On April 5, 2017, the LRTP Subcommittee unanimously voted for HRTPO staff to initiate the process of updating the Project Prioritization Tool based on recommendations received by staff.  Since that time, HRTPO staff has been conducting research and soliciting additional feedback from regional stakeholders.  Since 2018, HRTPO staff has been working with the Project Prioritization Working Group and the LRTP Subcommittee, along with other HRTPO advisory committees, to develop and refine potential measures to incorporate or enhance in the Tool, and adjust weighting factors based on these recommended improvements.  The Project Prioritization Task Force and the LRTP Subcommittee have both recommended approval of the recommended enhancements and updated weighting factors.  On February 5, 2020, the Transportation Technical Advisory Committee also recommended approval of the recommended enhancements and updated weighting factors.

All interested parties are encouraged to review the draft recommended enhancements to the HRTPO Project Prioritization Tool.  Please send comments to Dale Stith, Principal Transportation Planner, at dstith@hrtpo.org or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, VA, 23320 by March 6, 2020.

 


 

DRAFT HRTPO FY 2021-2024

Transportation Improvement Program

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA).  As the federally designated MPO, the HRTPO is responsible for coordinating transportation planning and programming activities for the Hampton Roads MPA.  This includes the development and maintenance of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The TIP is a financially-constrained, multi-year program for the implementation of surface transportation projects within the MPA.  The TIP must contain all federally-funded and/or regionally-significant projects that require an action by the Federal Highway Administration or the Federal Transit Administration.  Before any such project can be conducted or constructed in the MPA, it must be included in a current TIP that has been approved by the HRTPO.

The HRTPO, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, Hampton Roads Transit, Williamsburg Area Transit Authority, Suffolk Transit, and the Cities and Counties of Hampton Roads, is in the process of developing a full update of the TIP.  The current TIP covers fiscal years (FY) 2018-2021.  The new TIP under development will cover FY 2021-2024.   

The Draft HRTPO FY 2021-2024 TIP document is being made available for public review and comment.  You may access the Draft TIP by clicking on the following link:

Draft HRTPO FY 2021-2024 TIP

All interested parties are encouraged to review the draft TIP document and send comments to John Mihaly, Principal Transportation Planner, at jmihaly@hrtpo.org or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320.  The deadline for comments is March 3, 2020.
