||Local Transportation Funding in Virginia: Lessons Learned
Peter B. Ohlms
Some Virginia localities have used alternative funding sources to implement transportation improvements when state funding was not available.
The purpose of this study is to establish a factual basis of information on what local governments have been able to accomplish when using existing legislative authority and resources.
A secondary purpose is to identify funding sources that are promising for road-construction projects but that currently are not used in Virginia.
The methodology for this study includes a literature review, a survey of local governments and interviews with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) staff and local officials. The final report will contain guidance in the form of lessons learned.
