the The federal government requires metropolitan planning bodies with populations over 200,000, such as FAMPO, to develop a congestion management process (CMP). The CMP provides up-to-date information on the performance of the transport system and evaluates congestion management strategies. It assesses several performance measures, planned and scheduled projects, alternative modes of transport and short- and long-term congestion mitigation strategies for the main corridors of the FAMPO region.
A public comment period began on March 1, 2022 and will run until March 15, 2022. During the comment period, the public will have the opportunity to review additions to the FAMPO CMP, in particular the data on congestion, safety and public transit before the pandemic. which takes stock of the document adopted by FAMPO in 2019.
Additionally, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has asked FAMPO to add two projects to its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP contains a list of projects to receive federal funding over the next four years. All transportation projects receiving federal funding are of regional significance and must be included in the TIP document.
The process for adding these projects to the TIP document includes a 30-day public comment period followed by approval by the FAMPO Policy Board. A public comment period began March 1, 2022 and will run through March 30, 2022 to address two resolutions – UPC 120524 (New Park & Ride at Exit 133 near I-95) and UPC 120644 (Rt 1 STARS – Rt 3 Off-Ramp – Spotsylvania Ave Upgrades).
The comment period is now open! Please find complete information about, https://www.fampo.gwregion.org/news/
